Last Passover, during our ski camp in Austria, there was spring time and comfortable weather. Every day we went skiing on the mountain that was full of snow, but the sun was always shining, and the views were breathtaking. That’s what it’s like when you ski in April on a glacier at an altitude of 3000 meters, and the camp itself is located at the foot of the mountain, in the valley. Read More

Kimama’s community of parents meet some very interesting people, and over the years, some friendships have naturally formed. One of the special people I met last year is Enon, a seasoned and outstanding start up entrepreneur. As part of his job, he meets a lot of people around the world and visits all sorts of places that not everyone gets to see. Read More
After the second Kimama summer, we started to think of ideas for winter camps, and as always we wanted to be unique, to think outside the box, and to come up with something that was more than just a four days camp in the Upper Galilee during the Hanukkah holidays.
The summer of 1999 was the first time I went as a “Shaliach” of the Jewish Agency to a summer camp in North America, in the role of the camp’s music counselor. For the next six years I would go on to serve as counselor at a summer camp in the United States every summer (1999-2004). At that time I did not know that the experience would change my life and pave my way toward building a career in the field of summer camps. In the summer of 2004 we founded Camp Kimama. A simple calculation shows that I’ve been involved with summer camps for seventeen years now. Read More
Dear campers and parents
Just before this summer changes from the present to the past, with the soon return of our Kimama New York campers to Israel, I wanted to thank you all for our joint summer together, at Kimama.
I am aware, that it is not to be taken for granted, that you made the decision to leave your dearest children and send them for one or two or even three weeks away from home. It is important for me to tell you that I really appreciate the belief that you have in us. Read More
