Meet the 1st Session 2022 Tzevet!

We are so excited to be starting Camp Galil this week! The tzevet (which is Hebrew for staff) has been at camp since early June, working, training and preparing for our chanichimot’s (Hebrew for campers) arrival in the next few days. Read on to meet the 1st Session Tzevet!

2022 Mazkirut

First off, we have the Mazkirut. We met them in an earlier blog post, but if you haven’t seen it yet – check them out!

Amelimot Tzevet

Next, we have our Amelimot Tzevet. This group will be working with campers in 3rd-4th grade! They are led by Josh, a returning staff member who just came back from Habonim Dror’s Workshop in Israel. He’s joined by Sienna, a fellow Workshopper; Peri and Maddie, who are longtime Galil alumni and in their first year on Tzevet; and Gal, a Summer Shaliach from Israel!

Par Par Tzevet

Next, we have our Par Par Tzevet who will be working with Chotrimot and Sayarimot (5th & 6th grades) this summer! They are led by Gabby, another returning staff member and member of the Camp Galil Board of Directors. She is joined by Sydra, Eli and Trent, all long-time Galil alumni and first-year tzevet members, and by Mira, a Summer Shlicha from Israel!

The Galil Specialists

This amazing team of people are our Galil Specialists this summer! First off, we have Noa, a returning tzevet member, and they are joined by Kai, a first-year, and Jonah, a Workshopper from Gesher, who will be working on Teva (Nature). They’ll be handling the Ropes Course, the Gan (Garden), planning our Tiyulim (camping trips) and taking care of our baby lambs! Then, we have Gal, a summer shlicha from Israel who is our Lifeguard, overseeing all things aquatics. Next, we have Hannah, a first-year tzevet member who will be leading Omanut (Arts & Crafts) this summer. We also have Guy, a summer shaliach from Israel, who is our Videographer this summer, and Jonah (off-camera) returning as Communications Specialist.
