Cincy Tzofim at Camp Livingston

Ninth grade tzofim (scouts) from Netanya  join the overnight Jewish camp program at Camp Livingston in the “Chalutzim” unit.  They participate fully in all camp programming, assist with Israeli programming, and act as Israeli ambassadors. Throughout their time at camp, they build lifelong friendships with their American peers, strengthening connections and Jewish identities on both sides. Before they go to camp, they are hosted in Cincinnati by their peers. They participate in community service, are exposed to Jewish pluralism, and explore life as a Jewish American. 

Netanya Counselors at Camp at the J

Two post-IDF emissaries are brought as “Israel specialists” to work at Camp at the J, the Mayerson JCC day camp, for the summer session.  These counselors are hosted in Cincinnati homes, and they completely integrate with the full camp community and staff.  They create vibrant, fun, and educational programming which teaches about Israeli culture, history, customs, and society.  The counselors also experience Cincinnati, Jewish life in the diaspora, and Jewish pluralism.

Israeli Counselors at Camp Livingston

Several young adult emissaries from Israel come to Camp Livingston as camp counselors, with a mission of bringing Israel to life for campers. They are fully integrated into the staff and community at Camp Livingston, our regional overnight summer camp for Jewish youth. The counselors further stengthen Israel programming at camp and connections with Israel.
