Encourage and Experience
Camp Koby Sleepaway Camps are fun filled camps for Israeli children who have lost a parent or sibling to terror or tragedy. Your 5 week Camp Koby Summer In Israel Experience is an intense and meaningful opportunity for you to play a role in the recovery and healing process of your young Israel children recovering from terror or tragedy in Israel.
As a Camp Koby Counselor you will help our Camp Koby campers to have loads of fun and feel free to express their feelings to other children who experienced a similar loss and to Israeli and American counselors like you.
