Days 4 and 5 of the Arab-Jewish Summer Camp featured educational and entertaining field trips.
On Day 4, campers visited Nahal HaShofet (The Judge’s River), at The Plain of Menassah between Mount Carmel and Mount Amir/Umm al-Fahm. This area was added to the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves in 2011, and is known as a model of sustainable coexistence between man and nature in Israel.
In the morning, the children were introduced to the smells and tastes of the past through ancient agriculture, played a variety of outdoor educational games, and did some arts & crafts with natural materials. Time was also spent learning about each other’s traditional clothing, food, customs, songs and dances. The children returned to the Leo Baeck Main Campus in the early afternoon and were treated to “Yulia’s Circus Show.”
Day 5 was the annual trip to the Tel Aviv Luna Park!
