The Shvatim (tribes/chapters) will have a number of meaningful events and activities throughout the year including: a yearly “kickoff” seminar for the older grades, a winter camping experience, ceremonies, celebrations and services. In addition, there will be a number of events for the entire group of members in the leadership grade including: a camp for the older grades – “Machane Tzababa”, a seminar for the leadership grades, a summer camp on the east coast, and more.
The Shvatim (tribes/chapters) are run by their counselors, older scout members, in conjunction with parent associations that are headed by a Chairperson and a Shevet leader.
The scouting activities are aimed at the development of our youth’s intellect, social skills, and morals through activities tailored for specific age groups including personal conversations, careful considerations, various projects, camping experiences, ceremonies, holiday celebration, music, sports and of course, lots of fun in the process.
In addition to standard weekly activities, special activities such as celebrating Israeli holidays, performing community service and Friday-night Shabbat services take place as well.
