We are excited to present to you (drum roll please)…. Machane What’s Cooking?/ Machane Ma Mitvashel?

Betar Fed camp is an amazing opportunity to create some unforgettable moments with Betarim not just from your state but all of Betar Australia! We have a variety of exciting and fun games for all campers, and we are looking forward to seeing all of your smiling faces! Betar camp is the perfect place for you if you’re looking to have an awesome time and make lots of new friends. 

Betar is a Revisionist Zionist youth movement, with maozim in Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne. We aim to provide our participants with a strong Zionist and Jewish education, as well as providing a sense of community, but most importantly fun!

This year camp will be in Melbourne, from the 10-18th of Jan 2022 for grades 7-13. This will include 9 days of ultimate kef and lots of ruach as well as interesting and meaningful activities. Camp will be held at a campsite in rural Victoria, with accommodation in cabins.

As part of Betar’s cross communal environment, all food on camp is Kosher, and on Friday+Saturday a Shabbat friendly environment is upheld in all public areas. Betar always ensures all activities follow guidelines set out by the AZYC, the overarching organisation of Zionist youth movements in Australia, as well as those set by the Australian Childhood Foundation. A certified medic will be on camp, and will be responsible for any incidents on camp, as well as assisting your child in all their general medical needs.

Can’t wait to see you there, lots of love from your roshim <3
