DorL'DorAt 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 founding vision. 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 camper 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 a new role, sharing their Israel exposure with younger campers.

(DLD-Adult-2We even offer a Dor L’Dor Israel Trip for Adults in some years!)

Current Cohen Campers who have completed the 10th grade: Join peers from all three Cohen Camps—Pembroke, Tel Noar, and Tevya—for an intensive four weeks in Israel, a trip that is physically, spiritually, and intellectually stimulating.

“Dor L’Dor was a life altering experience for our daughter. When we spoke with her on the phone we have NEVER heard her sound more excited, engaged, enthusiastic and happy IN HER LIFE. THANK YOU for providing this wonderful program.”
