Today started off with a tour of Degania Bet from a life-long resident (Camp Havaya’s own Ruvik).

Next we drove to the Golan Heights and looked out into Syria. Our tour guide Dalak talked to us about the recent history of the region.

After a picnic lunch we headed to a chocolate factory to make our own chocolate!

Finally we rafted down a river before heading back to the kibbutz for dinner.

Camp JRF is now Camp Havaya.

Worry not! We have a new name but, deep down, we’re still the same incredibly diverse and welcoming community where kids explore Judaism in their own ways and become the best versions of themselves.
