Passover vacation for kids is long (just about 3 weeks). They kids love it, the parents struggle to keep them busy, but as they grow, they seem to keep themselves busy.
In Israel, one of the popular activities during this break is the Youth Movement Passover Camp (or in Hebrew “Machaneh Pessach shel ha Tnua”). In our Moshav, the kids starting from 4th grade, join the local youth movement of the Moshavim. They wear a royal blue shirt with a red string. Blue shirt represents the blue collar workers, and the red string communism. Sounds perfect for the son of a venture capitalist…
Yoav just got back from his first Israeli camp experience. I’ve never seen him so tired before! They built their own tent, cooked their own food, did some night time exploring (“Ash Laila”), and bottom line - didn’t sleep very much. Tired, but very, very happy!
Today, it’s D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) with his buddies. Who wants to go back to 4th grade???
