SUMMER CAMP for 1,000+ New Ukrainian Olim (Immigrant) Children

Through our associated Youth Movement, Dror Israel Educators are creating special camp experiences for Ukrainian children recently arrived in Israel tailored to their needs:

  • Trained counselors for emotional/trauma support

  • Russian-speaking “buddies” who also came to Israel as children

  • Instruction in Hebrew language, Israeli culture and geography

  • Lots of FUN - Hiking, sports, art, music, and more

Our Goal: To Provide 1,000 Kids with Summer Camp FUN!

 

At $500 per child, that’s $500,000 to give these children time to heal, time to smile, time to just be a kid.
