1st-3rd grade graduates: Cocoon Tribe, Color:Blue
Cocoon tribe’s activities are all together, as one tribe – not divided into groups as in other tribes at the camp.
We believe that it is important that at all ages, the youngest in particular, personal attention is given. Therefore, this age group is guaranteed to have a ratio of one staff member for every four campers at most. The counselors of this age group are in attendance at all hours of the day – to help them with their chores such as tidying the rooms, personal hygiene (showers, brushing teeth, changing clothes, changing bedding and organizing washing) and to ensure that the campers are given the attention they need. In this manner we are able to create an integrated group, in which campers are given an opportunity to express themselves and their abilities and will feel they are being taken care of, just like at home…

4th-5th grade graduates: Maya Tribe, color: Red
Maya tribe is divided into groups: In each group there are between 10 and 15 campers and several staff members. There are both boys and girls in each group with separate rooming. The counselors of this age group are in attendance at all hours of the day – to help them with their chores such as tidying the rooms and personal hygiene and ensure that campers are given the attention they need.

Leaders in Training- Educational program – Leadership
New trip for LIT tribe in Kimama – An exciting unforgettable trip to Zetfat!
Kimama is an extraordinary opportunity to have new experiences, and to get to know, and live with other teenagers from all over the world. Two weeks, far from home, without Facebook or iPhones, strong ties are made between the Israeli campers and those who come from abroad; connections that your teens will have for many years to come. This age group at Camp Kimama enjoys their last year of campers activities as they will subsequently attend the counselor course – they get to be the elders of camp this year.
This age group is called LIT – Leaders in Training, and the program prepares them to be leaders; leaders at camp, leaders in their communities. This program offers many activities and discussions on the topic of leadership in the Jewish community and in Israel, leaders in the world, what leadership is, and how it may be used as a positive influence on society, contributing and giving, etc.
In the framework of this program, the campers assist the counselors of the younger age groups, organize events at camp, and serve as role models in all that they do.
So How does it work? 
The LIT campers are not divided into groups, but live at camp as a single, multi-cultural integrated group. They have four staff members who are responsible for their educational and experiential activities, and together they lead the camp. After concluding the LIT summer in Kimama, campers will be entitled to participate in the CIT program, which prepares them to be counselors at Kimama.
