Israel Education

A strong connection to Israel has been a fundamental part of the Galil experience since we opened our doors in 1946.  In fact, our barn (refet) was used to help smuggle weapons to Jewish activists in modern-day Israel before the 1948 War of Independence.  Now we share our love of Israel with campers by bringing in Israeli emissaries (shlichim) and running Israel Day.  We also teach Hebrew and Israeli culture through informal activities.  Campers don’t need to sit at a desk to learn Hebrew at Galil!
