our work : summer camps
Every year, depending on the funding support we’ve received, we try to organise holiday camps in the summer for different age groups with sports, art, music, trips, theatre and cultural activities.
For young children we hold a day camp at the Center in the Old City, arranging competitive sports and creative activities as well as trips to swimming pools and fun parks.
For teenagers and young adults there are six to eight day sleeping-out camps. These are arranged in the West Bank to make it possible for young people from East Jerusalem to interact with other teenagers from different areas of Palestine. We strengthen their sense of identity by teaching them Palestine’s history through trips and cultural educational sessions and we develop their confidence by extending their friendship groups as they learn about teamwork and tolerance of others.
