Camp Shomria Israel Ken

Can't wait until summer?

Neither could we. The Ken (‘nest’ in Hebrew) is our time to come together and put what we’ve been learning into practice back in the city. We, like many camps, are able to create a sort of alternate universe in the summer, but unlike any other camp, we know that developing our campers into the best versions of themselves can’t only happen one month of the year. It’s a practice, one that continues on even into the school year and the Ken is how we ensure that happens. In fact, in most branches of Hashomer Hatzair around the world, there’s only a Ken and no summer camp at all – that’s how important sustained engagement is to this work.
The Ken, like all our programs, is facilitated by the youth themselves.
