Ofek is FZY’s incredible summer camp for 12-13 year olds (Year 7 & 8 in England, P7 & S1 in Scotland) and Kesher is for 14 & 15-year-olds (Year 9 & 10 in England, S2 & S3 in Scotland). Whether it’s your first time on an FZY camp or you’re an experience FZYnik, you’re sure to be welcomed into the FZY family with open arms. It’s a great opportunity to have new experiences and make new friends from across the UK. Ofek and Kesher have a varied programme of fun and educational activities. Participants will explore their Jewish and Zionist identities, learn about Israel, and experience camp highlights that include the famous FZY Maccabiah Colour Wars, activity days out and sports days!
Israel Tour – FZY’s educational journey for 16-year-olds (Year 11 in England, S4 in Scotland), allows our chanichim to really see Israel and experience its diversity, history, culture and relevance to them as young British Jews. From Tsfat to Eilat, Rosh Hanikra to Jerusalem, our participants travel the length and breadth of the country, experiencing the sights and feelings of Israel when enjoying activities such as swimming in the Kinneret, standing by the Western Wall, partying in Eilat and hiking round the beautiful waterfalls of the Galil. Some FZY tours are joined by Israelis from our sister movement the Tsofim (Scouts), and all groups meet up with teenagers from America, enabling them to interact with and learn from other young Jews from around the world. FZY Israel Tour provides an incredible opportunity to see Israel in ways never seen before.
