Machaneh Kadimah is an  amazing inclusive environment where all participants can flourish, make friends and have fun. We run sessions ranging from swimming to singing, drama to den-building, discussions about Israel to debates about Jewish identity, friendship bracelet-making to football and dodgeball to discos. There is never a dull moment on Machaneh Kadimah!

Staff

Machaneh Kadimah is staffed by a team of enthusiastic, dedicated and experienced madrichim (leaders). All our leaders are fully trained and DBS checked. These are the talented young people who plan and deliver two weeks’ worth of magnificently creative activities, and all are LJY-Netzer members who want to give to the class of 2019 what they experienced when they were on Kadimah as participants. Overseeing the whole camp is the LJY-Netzer movement work team. They are fully trained professionals employed by Liberal Judaism, all of whom have worked extensively with young people and have led multiple Kadimahs as well as other LJY-Netzer programmes. We also have on site a medic, a welfare office and Becca Fetterman, who is the Director or Youth.
