10th Grade Program

Get ready for our newest aidah, our brand new program: BONIM!

This 10th-grade program will be unlike any aidah that came before it. With these campers having already graduated our demanding Segel program, they’ll now be trusted with more freedom and responsibility than ever before. They’ll co-lead activities, have more input in their daily schedule, and live in our exclusive Teen Village, a living space just for them!


The experience has been designed with three key components, (our three “pillars” of Bonim):

Hadracha (Leadership)

The group’s Leadership Training Seminar will help these young people reflect upon and improve their skills in a collaborative setting. They’ll also be co-leading a daily camp-wide elective with Camp specialists, allowing Bonim campers to practice leadership with younger kids.

Tikkun Olam (Healing the World)

Bonim will be focusing on what we call “MADIMOW”—Making a Difference in My Own Way! Campers will walk away with a tangible sense of their ability to change the world, (with an opportunity to earn up to 20 community service hours while they do it!)

Chadshanut (Innovation)

By exploring the Israeli inventiveness in their technology, sustainability, and animal care, the 10th-grade track will impart the mindset of creativity and original problem-solving!
