Jewish-Arab Summer Camps
Since 2020 FKI’s joint Arab-Jewish summer camps provide a unique opportunity for children from different backgrounds to come together and build bridges of understanding and friendship. Each year we hold two camps, one for boys and girls aged 10-12 and one for teen girls aged 13-15.
Our camps promote intercultural understanding, through various workshops the children learn about each other’s cultures, traditions, and values. They develop empathy and understanding for people who come from different backgrounds and learn to appreciate diversity.
The camps foster friendship and cooperation and provide a safe and welcoming environment where children can form friendships across cultural and religious divides. They can learn to work together and collaborate on projects and activities, which can build trust and mutual respect. The children learn new skills, try new foods, and participate in new traditions, they practice communication, empathy, and problem-solving skills, which helps them navigate conflict in a constructive and nonviolent way. By bringing children from different backgrounds together, these camps can help build a more peaceful and inclusive society.
