Bnei Akiva — winter camp adventures

Madrichim and Channichim all ready for Shabbat

Winter Camp was non-stop fun! We played laser tag, capture the flag, had boat races, learnt at EQT, ran around in the wind and rain, pet baby animals, had a super cool movie night and dance party and, as always, enjoyed a world-class shtick! 

Grade 8 channie, Ora Martin, says, “My favourite memory on Winter Camp was at the end of camp when one of my friends pied me in the face. My favourite tochnit was when we did karaoke and sang the song ‘Baby’ by Justin Bieber.” 

Rosh Winter Camp, Jethro Klitzner, says, “I was so proud to see the large number of channies who had never experienced a winter camp before absolutely love it. My favourite memory from Winter Camp was watching the different shichvas perform their showcase projects on Saturday night, as well as singing with everyone around the bonfire… also trying to catch a pheasant that escaped from the petting zoo.” 

If you would like to become involved in Bnei to make friends, explore Judaism, go on adventures and meet amazing role models, please reach out! We have activities every second Sunday! You can contact Ayelet at 083 225 3713.
