FAQ’s for International Camps

Who are the counselors that will be joining the camps?
The Camp Kimama management and the most experienced counselors from past summers join our international camps. The Kimama management has carefully selected the staff; the team consists of senior counselors (who have been with us for at least 2 years) who are between the ages 23-30. The staff will be with the campers 24 hours a day. Besides our Kimama counselors during our specialist activities, professional instructors will join our team.

Does the group have a security guard with them whilst abroad? Campers participating in our European camps have a fully trained Israeli security guard that will escort them 24/7. Campers participating in our Kimama New York camp have on site security 24/7.

Does the group have a medic with them whilst abroad?
Campers participating in our European camps have a fully trained medic that will escort them 24/7. Campers participating in our Kimama New York camp have on site surgery with medics and nurses 24/7.

What happens in case of a medical emergency?
In the case of a medical emergency, Harel Insurance covers all Israeli campers. Campers have access to practitioners at the local medical facilities.

Who is responsible for looking after my campers’ passport and valuables?
We ask that campers bring as few valuables as possible to camp. All passports will be collected from campers after their outgoing flights and kept by the counselors. We ask that all money is also handed into your counselors for safe keeping. Kimama do not take responsibility for items of value that are not kept by our staff members.

What is the food like at camp?
We serve three nutritious meals each day. At our European camps, all food is Kosher Style. At our Kimama New York camp, all food is Kosher.

Do you make provisions for special diets?
We do our best to accommodate special dietary needs. We serve vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and lactose-free options at each meal upon prior request. Please make sure to inform us of requests prior to the camps beginning.
