Please see the website for sessions. Gilboa (the West Coast chapter of Habonim Dror North America) offers a truly unique, vibrant and educational Jewish year-round youth movement and summer camping experience for children aged 9 to 17. Children happily absorb the ideals of the Habonim Dror youth movement: sharing, inclusiveness, creativity and responsibility to the community in both the year-round activities and at sleep-away camp in the summer. Our year round programming focuses on tikkun olam, Jewish identity and Israel education. Each month, kids from all around Los Angeles gather to celebrate Jewish Holidays, engage in tikkun olam projects and just have fun! Children gain a complete summer camp experience of recreation and informal learning in an Israeli kibbutz-style atmosphere at our lake-front site in Big Bear, CA. Activities include archery, kayaking, swimming, sports, hiking, music, dance, arts and crafts. Shabbat is celebrated with special activities, and Hebrew is introduced into everyday camp life. Our campers return year after year, developing leadership qualities and a love of Israel.
