Thank You for Participating // Avishay Nachon

By | בלוג אנגלית | 4 Comments

Dear campers and parents
Shalom,

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

Yuval Samucha, Lawyer and Counselor Since 2004

Kimama for me is like Fantasy Island. Every summer, I go back to my childhood and with the help of those I meet there, I succeed in fulfilling my wishes and laughing out loud. Kimama allows me to maintain contact with the people I love, even during the year, when I join Kimama’s winter activities.

I first heard of Kimama in 2010 after I made Aliyah. I made Aliyah in 2009 alone and without my family and when I heard about the camp I thought what a great way to meet people. So after applying and being accepted as a kimama counselor I found myself in June couple of years ago on a bus on my way to Michmoret. When I got there (like most campers that come to Kimama) I was scared, I didn’t know anyone and everything was new to me.
After only a few days at Kimama I felt I had found home, id made new friends who became like family. The campers became like younger brothers and sisters and the counselors and heads of camp have become lifelong friends.
5 years later I am still loving living in Israel, my Hebrew improved over my summer at Kimama and today I’m still an un separated part of Kimamas family, working at the office as costumer manager.
Kimama is amazing for all ages!
