Summer 2012

Camp Sdei Chemed is the best experience and every teenager should be able to experience it in their lifetime. We were in Israel for six weeks with amazing staff and amazing campers. Everyone was so friendly and sweet, and even though we were from different schools and backgrounds we all came together as one big happy family.I had been to Israel before and I thought that we would go to the same places and it would be like a repeat trip. It wasn’t that way. By being surrounded with amazing staff and girls it made it like I was seeing Israel for the first time. So who can ask for a better summer?!



I came home from camp and the first thing I said to my mom was, this was the best experience of my life!
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, Canada

“Camp Sdei Chemed gave me the best experience I could ever dream of.
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”. – Tirzah Weill, Teaneck NJ

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.

When someone goes to Israel they never go touring everywhere. This camp you saw everything & everyone was so nice to each other. The girls & the counselors were amazing & it was the best summer I ever had. Elisheva is there as a director but also as a friend we could rely on and talk to.

“Thank you so much! I really can’t thank you enough. I had the best summer of my life with Camp Sdei Chemed! Israel is breathtaking, and I cannot wait till my next visit. The atmosphere there is amazing, the clean fresh air of Yerushalyim, the yummy falafel, the amazing historical fact’s that belong to Israel. I always thought it was crazy how the whole world wanted that tiny piece of land, but now I understand why. Camp Sdei Chemed really takes you all over; I have such a yearning to be back home in Yerushalyim. When I left camp I couldn’t believe it. Camp was my life now, we wake up together, we hike all over the most beautiful land in the world. We have such cool activities, like swimming with dolphins, jet skiing, underground tunnels in Yerushalyim. I was with all of my best friends’ twenty/four/seven, having a blast and making memories in Israel. On the way to the airport I was in complete denial…till I saw a plane take off. Then it hit me and I just cried. The last night of camp they took us to a beautiful rooftop overlooking the entire Yerushalyim. We sang songs and I cried like I’ve never cried before. I thought I was going to Israel, to leave a mark on her, have fun make memories, but it turns out she left a bigger mark on me. Words cannot thank this amazing organization that helps all of Klal Yisroel get a better picture of where home really is.

“S’dei Chemed is the most amazing camp in the world, no joke! Its not like other camps where u have around 400 500 kids in a camp it’s a small camp and you get to know every individual! The Girls are amazing and the staff are so warm and generous! the trips are absolutely awesome from the kotel to swimming with the dolphins, I learned something from every trip!
All year I think and talk about camp and when the summer actually comes, it goes by way to fast! The staff and campers are AMAZING!! Every camper adds so much to the camp and camp wouldn’t be complete without them! The staff work so hard to give us the greatest summer of our lives and it really pays off! All the trips are a blast, whether there small trips or big ones!  I would recommend this camp to everyone, you make lifelong friends and gain a tremendous amount of appreciation for our homeland. Camp gave me the best 3 summers of my life and I’ll never forget them!!”

“I know I speak for both my wife and I (and rachel/kelly) in saying the experience she had at S’dei was like none other in her life. Words alone can’t express our hakoras hatov for the amazing program you bring the girls… A non-stop, enlightening experience ofEretz Yisroel. She was busy with amazing activities ALL the time, and couldn’t wait to call home and share. She was sad when she returned because of the experience and the new friends she made. But more than that, she experienced aruchnios transformation in how she viewed herself and Israel. From her tears at the kotel to ensuring she continues davening every day tells me that you do an unparalled job of balancing ruchnios andgashmios for these teenage girls. Would be glad to have her go again. Well done, and thank you!”
