Camp Kimama- Parent sharing about summer 2014
19.8

 

Penina Shepherd, Brighton UK, mother of Amelia

My daughter, Amelia, attended the 2 weeks’ summer Kimama camp for the first time in August 2012 when she was 11. She absolutely fell in love with Kimama and came back again in 2013. She is now keen to attend every year and achieve her dream to become a Kimama Camp Counselor. Amelia has no connection to Israel as such, she doesn’t go to Jewish school and does not speak Hebrew, so her visits to Kimama means so much to her (and of course me!). She made new friends in Israel and is now eager to learn Hebrew and talks about living in Israel.
I just wanted to add the parents’ perspective to the fantastic work that Kimama is doing. I just wish there was Kimama for parents- I’ll go! :)

It is very exciting and touching to hear that despite the hard times Isarel has been going through, and maybe BECAUSE the hard times, 350 young people from all over the world, left it all and came to join the IDF.

Good luck to everyone !
