    • The worst summer camp my kid has ever done
      Reviewed on Aug/04/2022 by sophieenos

      Don't believe what is said on the website! First, there are fewer workshops offered to the participants than announced. And despite their limited number, the quality of the workshops is really really poor. So are run by people who are barely familiar with they are supposed to teach! The persons who supervise the workshops are not enough knowlegeable and don't know how to run a workshop.
      Outside of the workshops, the events are almost non-existing, and those which are proposed are clearly neither adapted to the "older teenagers" (i.e. 15-17 years old), nor interesting. All in all, my kid was bored.
      Finally, while the program advertizes English as the daily language used by all, most participants and counselors do not make the efforts and rather speak Hebrew.
      All of this made the experience of our kid such a disappointment that he asked to leave the camp before the end! And no one called me to know why we took such a decision!
