Campers live in cabins, each equipped with electricity, hot water, two or three showers, two or three sinks, two or three toilets, and storage space. In addition, campers enjoy spacious modern wooden bunk-beds with comfortable and hygienic mattresses, as well as space to store clothing and personal items. Each of our camper cabins is supervised by 3-5 caring and loving staff members. Daily cabin clean-up competitions (“Nikayon”) encourage each camper to care for his/her own belongings and to cooperate with the group. Our housekeeping staff sanitize each camper bathroom on a regular basis.
