What does it take to truly develop proficiency with Modern Hebrew and can this really be done in the fun-filled context of a typical camp setting?  Parents say Yes.  Camps say Yes.  The research says Yes.  Funders say Yes.  And the kids say Keyn!  Join us for an exploration into the unique model of the Kayitz Kef / Hebrew At Camp program and how we adapt the gold standard of second language acquisition methodology to the unique and fertile setting of Jewish summer camps.  Experience it yourself during this session, and hear first-hand accounts of why the program works and why parents are so highly satisfied that they send their children back.  Delve into research showing camper pride in their Hebrew skills, increased self-confidence, and a deeper connection with the State of Israel.  Learn about our training, marketing and ongoing assistance to help ensure your camp’s success.  Discuss flexible financial models to fit your needs and budgets.  Explore with us how you can join the growing number of camps throughout North America participating in Kayitz Kef / Hebrew At Camp!
