Welcome to Machane Where’s Jabo?!

Betar Melbourne Summer camp is an amazing four days, filled with exciting and fun games for all campers. This is a great opportunity to create some unforgettable moments with Betarim over the summer! We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces!

Betar camps are the ideal place to make new friends, learn new things and engage in kef (fun) ruach (singing and dancing), and meaningful activities. 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 held at a campsite in Greater Melbourne, from the 21st-23rd of December 2021 for grades 2-6. As part of Betar’s cross-communal environment, all food on camp is Kosher.

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 ❤ Tash and Skylar- Your Summer Camp Roshim!
