At The Cohen Camps, we strongly believe that direct experience of Israel — the opportunity to create a personal relationship with the people, land and heritage of Israel — is integral to the way each person develops their Jewish identity, values and character. After all, supporting the founding of the State of Israel is part of our legacy. We begin to help our campers cultivate this connection with Israel from the moment they arrive at camp, and then build that connection through our growing array of Dor L’Dor (From Generation to Generation) Israel Programs:
At camp, bunks carry the names of Israeli cities and towns; many building names honor Zionist heroes; exuberant Israeli dancing enlivens Shabbat; our cohort of Israeli counselors add Hebrew and Israeli culture to our bunks and activities.
Then the capstone of the camp experience, the Dor L’Dor Leadership Program, guides our oldest campers through Israel itself, many for the very first time–and back to camp in junior leader roles.
Dor L’Dor: College Style combines Israeli internships and higher-level camp jobs for our college-age counselors.
And stay tuned: we may even host a 2016 Dor L’Dor Israel Trip for Adults! The 2014 trip sold out and was phenomenal.
