Enrollment for 2020-2021 is now OPEN!
Come join Shevet Galim! Over the past year, a new group of madrichim have been trained and we are excited for what the year has in store for us!
Activities will be conducted weekly at the SDJA campus according to the schedule outlined below. Please review the Calendar for any exceptions.
Location: San Diego Jewish Academy campus @ 11860 Shaw Ridge Road, San Diego, CA 92130 (map)

Schedule for chanichim activity: (2nd to 9th grade): 3:00PM-5:00PM
Activities will be conducted in Hebrew, by Hebrew speaking counselors, with realistic expectations of English use among the chanichim.
All participants will be expected to wear the Tzofim uniform (Khaki).
Khaki shirts with badges are available for $25 at Boutique Galim. Shevet Galim also offers a Celebratory Khaki – a white polo shirt with embroidered Shevet Galim logo to be worn on special occasions (Shabbat and Havdalah at machanot, Ceremonies etc.) Items can be purchased at “Boutique Galim” and picked up at your next activity.
After a successful inaugural year, Shevet Galim is happy to announce that the “Tzofkatim” program for children entering 2nd grade will continue this year.
This program allows 2nd graders to get a taste of Tzofim and enjoy age-appropriate Tzofim-like activities in Hebrew.
The activities will take place every Sunday (3PM-5PM) alongside the regular Tzofim activities, and will be run by shevet counselors under the direction of a Shevet alumnus.
It is important to note that the program will include activities only. Tzofkatim will not take part in shevet camps, hikes etc.
Register now to the cutest program in San Diego!
There is no need to purchase a shirt for Tzofkatim – a special Tzofkatim t-shirt will be provided to all tzofkatim members.
(In the event that the Tzofkatim shirt is misplaced, or you would like an additional shirt, one can be purchased from “Boutique Galim“.)
