Welcome to Machane Wild!!

Betar QLD is so happy to announce our summer camp, MACHANE WILD!

After the year we just had we are so excited to be back in action this winter with incredible activities!

Camp will be for years 2-10. Each day will be jam-packed with peulot (activities), games, outings and loads of time for your children to hang out with all of their friends! We’re back to normal this year, meaning an overnight camp.

Drop off and pick up will be near Greenslopes for Brisbane campers, and near Surfers Paradise for Gold Coast campers. For security reasons we are not releasing the exact addresses however they will be sent out to those who have signed up in the days leading up to camp.

We look forward to making many new memories with all of our campers, old and new! 

Finally, we are acting in accordance to AZYC guidelines and government regulations. We will be keeping our eyes open for any changes and update you accordingly. 

We can’t wait to see all your smiling faces very very soon, 

Tel Chai!

Ziggy & Daniel
