    The BIG IDEA Experience

    Join us for a summer in the Youth Village of Meir Shfeya, a beautiful evergreen campus on Mt. Carmel (Near Zikhron Yaakov) equipped with the newest computer labs, a large swimming pool and gorgeous dorms.  We provide an environment that encourages personal growth, innovation and true friendships. Experienced camp counselors and supervisors are attuned to give true personal attention, that makes even a first-timer feel right at home from the get-go.

    Camp Topics

    Computers, robotics, website design, game and application development, Photography, video, graphics, animation, special effects, DJ and 3D printing, jewelry and fashion design. There is a special entrepreneurship track for high school teens.
    BIG IDEA is not all just computers - our campers enjoy a variety of outdoor workshops, wave surfing, sports and group activities!

    Campers at BIG IDEA come from all over the world. The common language spoken at camp is English. It is a pluralistic religious environment and everyone is made to feel welcome. Workshops will not be held on Shabbat and campers can choose to join a Shabbat program if they want to. The camp is kosher and located in a beautiful Youth Village.

    • The worst summer camp my kid has ever done

      Reviewed on 04/08/2022 by sophieenos

      Don't believe what is said on the website! First, there are fewer workshops offered to the participants than announced. And despite their limited number, the quality of the workshops is really really poor. So are run by people who are barely familiar with they are supposed to teach! The persons who supervise the workshops are not enough knowlegeable and don't know how to run a workshop.
      Outside of the workshops, the events are almost non-existing, and those which are proposed are clearly neither adapted to the "older teenagers" (i.e. 15-17 years old), nor interesting. All in all, my kid was bored.
      Finally, while the program advertizes English as the daily language used by all, most participants and counselors do not make the efforts and rather speak Hebrew.
      All of this made the experience of our kid such a disappointment that he asked to leave the camp before the end! And no one called me to know why we took such a decision!
