Camp S’dei Chemed is a world-class touring program in Israel for Jewish Orthodox teens ages 12-17,  with campers from across the USA, Canada and Europe.

It all began in 1969 when no one ever dreamed of bringing American youth to Israel. S’dei Chemed pioneered the way. Today, Sdei Chemed is an intensive 6 week experience combining learning, touring, chessed and exciting activities. We have a beautiful campus in Yerushalayim as well as overnights in the North and South, a weekend in Tzfat, and a 3 day visit to Eilat. Our campers will explore the length and breadth of Eretz Yisrael. They will be inspired by many renowned Jewish personalities as well as knowledgeable and experienced tour guides who will instill a love of Eretz Yisrael that will last a lifetime. With 45 years of experience in the camping and touring business there is no one that does it better. There is a reason why everybody that spent a summer in S’dei Chemed says it was “the greatest summer of their lives!”

First Set Of pics Gathering (521)This summer totally exceeded my expectations. I was expecting a touring camp in Israel, and what I got was the BEST experience of my life. Every trip we went on, I felt like it was worth it to come to camp just for that trip. (your favorite camper since the history of S’dei Chemed)Leah Dinovitz

We visited Israel from north to south, going on TONS of hikes, swimming in many bodies of water, and davening at many different Holy Sites. I came into camp knowing only 2 girls, but came out with a new group of best friends. This camp made me realize that it’s okay to be friends with people who are different than you- whether they are older, younger, more modern, very religious… Sdei chemed girls and staff never judge people based on looks, but rather the qualities they hold in their heart. It’s a true lesson to learn, and sdei chemed was the one to show it to me”. Summer 2012Tirzah Weill, Teaneck NJ

Aside from all of the amazing activities and trips, the campers and staff were some the most amazing people that I have ever met. At camp I felt like the better more fun version of myself. Between the places we went and the people around me, a summer like this is hard, no… impossible to beat! – Ariel Schwartz, Ontario, CanadaAriel Schwartz, Ontario, Canada

Been to Israel before? Seen everything? No Problem!

Our Tour B program is designed for those campers returning to camp for a second summer. Each summer we rotate some of our tours so that those coming back for a second summer will visit new places. On the trips that are the same as the previous year we have a special Tour B alternative. Tour B trips are usually more advanced, more extreme and more fun!
