It’s going to be a wild and unforgettable week: skiing, snowboarding, tours, social activities, and extreme sports with friends from Israel and all over the world, along with the most experienced counselors of Camp Kimama.

For the several consecutive winters since 2007, we’ll be setting out for Skimama Passover in the Italian Dolomites. It’s going to be a wild and unforgettable week. Around 60 Kimama campers will spend time together on the mountains learning how to ski (each according to their ski level, suitable for beginners too!). The activities include: ski, snowboard, tours, social programs and extreme sports with friends from Israel and all over the world.

The camp will be held under close supervision of Kimama’s experienced and trusted counselors, together with the local licensed team of English-speaking ski and snowboard instructors. The camp is open to campers in grades 1-12, but hurry because the number of spots for campers is limited. So register quickly!

The Program
At Skimama there are around 60 Kimama new and returning campers and around 10 staff members (who are over 23 and include our best counselors and management team). The program consists of five full days of skiing (morning to afternoon) and a day of touring. Every day, after the skiing session is over, campers go back to the hotel, shower, and get ready for Kimama’s social activities – special night programs, a tour of the nearby village, Kabbalat Shabbat, sports competitions, a movie, a trip to a heated pool and more!

Skimama Staff
The Camp Kimama management and the most experienced counselors from past summers will be joining Skimama. The staff was carefully selected by the Kimama management; The team consists of senior counselors (who have been with kimama for at least 2 years) that are between the ages 23-30. These are our finest counselors, and they are sure to give your children an experience of a lifetime. The staff will be with the campers 24 hours a day. Besides being with the campers at the ski instruction during the day, the staff will hold social and educational activities in the evening. During the ski hours, a professional local ski instructor will join.

Five full days of skiing
One day trip
And endless activities around the clock

See you there.

The Ski Resort
Our skiing activities will be taking place at Jochtal skiing site in Italy. The site has a variety of ski slopes, however, is at the same time small enough to allow for campers’ proper supervision, safety and security.

Ski Levels and Lessons
The campers are divided into three levels (beginners, intermediate, and advanced), separately for skiing and snowboarding activities. There will be about 10 campers in each ski group. Each group will have one ski instructor and at least one Kimama counselor. Our experience has shown that during the week all campers move up at least one level.

Language
The ski instructors are employees of the ski site, and all instruction takes place in English. However, every ski group will have a Kimama counselor accompanying them throughout the activities who will translate and assist.

Ages
Skimama is great for all ages in grades 1-12. Campers are divided into age groups for their social activities. In the ski groups, there might be campers from more than one age group, as the camper’s age doesn’t necessarily indicate their ski level.

Equipment and Gear
The registration fee includes the rental of the following ski equipment : Skis and Poles or Snowboard, boots and  helmet. All other ski clothing and gear (ski suit, gloves goggles etc) is not included in the price. Kimama will supply you with special coupons for leading ski gear stores in Israel. Once you register, we will send you the coupons and a packing list.

Hotel
We are renting out a wonderful hotel located near the skiing site. It’s a large and amazingly beautiful ski lodge reserved solely for Camp Kimama campers. Campers will have a room that sleeps from two to six kids each (boys and girls in separate rooms). Each room has its own bathroom and shower, heating, towels and all the other hotel services. The lodge has several recreation room for activities.

Food and Drinks
Food in Skimama is “Kosher Style”.
Skimama provides three meals a day: Breakfast at the hotel, Lunch at the restaurant of the ski site and dinner either at a restaurant or at the hotel. Both Lunch and dinner will be hot meals. Water will be available at all times; everyone will get a water bottle before skiing as well. Before bedtime, there will be cookies, fruit, hot chocolate or tea.

A medic and a security guard will accompany our group in all activities, both at the ski sight and the hotel.
