Machaneh 2019 is just around the corner and the entire camp team is working incredibly hard to ensure that Machaneh Derech Chaim is the best one yet!

There is no better way to spend a summer holiday than at Bnei Akiva Machaneh. We bring hundreds of people to an environment that is safe, enriching and most of all… FUN. The beach, tiyulim, chugim, inspiring tochniot and non-stop action are all happening at Machaneh Derech Chaim. Not only will our Chanichim and Madrichim leave  Machaneh inspired and fulfilled, but also, they will have had the most incredible 3-week holiday with their friends.

The vision on this year’s Machaneh is to show every Channich and Channicha what it means to be a Bnei Akiva Jew and live our way of life. Our mission is to ensure every Channich and Channicha leaves Machaneh feeling closer to Hashem through the ideals of Bnei Akiva. We want to create an environment where all Chanichim can develop and grow.

Machaneh Derech Chaim is happening on the following dates:

Ktan Tanim (Grade 3 and 4) – 11 to 16 December
Gurim (Grade 5 and 6) – 11 to 23 December
Roim, Moledet, Dorot, Hineini, Orot (Grade 7, 8, 9, 10, 11) – 4 to 23 December
Gurim Maddies (Matrics) – 5 to 23 December
A-Guard (Grade 11 optional) – 29 November to 23 December
