Gibushon is a brand-new 2-day camp for years 7 and 8. It is designed to give students the opportunity to foster a connection with Israel and Israeli culture through fun and educational programs, while improving and using their conversational Hebrew. Programs and activities will be run in both English and Hebrew.
Please note, students do not need to be fluent in Hebrew. All activities will be catered to students with varying levels of Hebrew.
The Hebrew term Gibushon translates as the act of unity. In Israel, Gibushon refers to a 2-day selection process for the most elite units in the IDF. It is a time for the prospective young men and women to engage with each other and work together to achieve their goals.
The aim of Gibushon is to inspire your child/ren to be proud of their Jewish identity. Students will have a team of strong and reliable madrichim (leaders) to guide them.
The programs and activities at Gibushon are specifically designed to explore the fun, exciting and vibrant aspects of Israel and while developing new friendships with other Jewish students. Students will have the opportunities to taste the essence of Israel by creating their own Israel-style meals, engage in easy-to-use modern-day Hebrew conversations and enjoy an awesome Israeli movie.
Gibushon will be held on 2nd-3rd July 2017 (2 days and 1 night) on the North Shore. The exact location will be disclosed once your child/ren are registered.
