Program Information

Ha’Geemnasia is CBE’s Hebrew language camp for kids entering K-4th grade. No previous experience with Hebrew required!

At Ha’Geemnasia, children enjoy unique and fun Israeli-style programming while gaining Hebrew language skills. Our warm and energetic camp environment is led by a highly experienced staff that includes teachers from our year-round Ha’Geemnasia after school program, Israeli emissaries from the Jewish Agency, and other qualified specialists, who are passionate about Hebrew, Israeli culture, and Jewish Identity. Jewish values and Israeli culture are incorporated into all activities, which include Israeli cooking, sports, nature, and more.

Campers also participate in a weekly Kabbalat Shabbat celebration every Friday afternoon and enjoy special events with visitors such as the Israeli Scouts Caravan.
