Israel Sleep Away Camp

About

We took two of our favorite things and combined them. Israel and basketball.

We are back Summer 2021 for a sixth straight summer in Israel.

Camp includes American campers from the U.S. who are flying with us from NYC as well as local Israeli and American kids living or vacationing in Israel.

Boys: Grades 5-12

Girls: Grades 5-12

Camp in Israel is hosted in Ben Shemen Youth Village, a private campus centrally located 15 minutes from Ben Gurion Airport, yet tucked away, giving the boys a cozy feel of a private campus. This is the same campus that hosts our year round ‘Academy’, a basketball boarding school for boys and girls grades 7-12.

Ben Shemen is a fully gated campus with 24/7 security, clean, modern air conditioned rooms, private bathrooms and showers, a great cafeteria, excellent food, shul, indoor basketball courts, outdoor courts, a weight room, a soccer field for outdoor training, and hang out spaces.

The basketball curriculum is identical to our curriculum in New Jersey which we’ve been developing and improving each and every summer since 2009.
