Age Groups

In LJY-Netzer, we split participants up based on age & school year. On our bigger event we have multiple age groups on the same site but with most activities done separately. This enables us to help tailer make the programs we deliver and help bond the different ages.

We really value the community that we build with and the family that we become on events. Inclusion, bonding and personal growth are near the top of our priority list!

These are our different age groups:

Ananim (clouds) – School year 3-4

Contact Hannah, h.stephenson@liberaljudaism.org or on 0207 6319825, for more info.

6Ananim was specifically introduced to cater for the needs of our youngest participants on our larger events. It is a super-welcoming, ultra-caring and, most importantly, a mega-fun way to spend your early events with LJY-Netzer. A high staff-to-participant ratio will ensure there’s always a friendly face to turn to or another game to play.

Yamim are the oldest participants on our camps. It’s a chance to not only carry on having all the fun you did when you were younger but also have great discussions about things that matter to you as young people. Kinus is a chance for Yamim to influence the movement. We recognise your age by having separate age groups on Machaneh Kadimah for the years 9 and 10. The year 9s are the oldest participants on the Kadimah site as well as going on a two day hike!

The year 10s are under canvas on a nearby field having a fantastic experience being separate from the main Kadimahsite but still part of the LJY-Netzer family. Chalutzim also start their leadership careers on Machaneh Kadimah by hosting all the different age-groups from the main site at special events throughout camp. All the time we make sure that you bond as a group especially as you’ll be spending a lot of time together in the future!
