Great news for kids of Shluchim in Europe: Tzeirei Hashluchim in Sweden is gearing up for winter camp – this time for boys as well.
After over a hundred campers attended the two Tzeirei Hashluchim camps in Sweden this summer, many of the kids started counting down time until winter camp.
Parents requested a boys winter camp too and this year will be a historic first, beezras Hashem!
Many Shluchim live in isolated locations around Europe, without access to frum schools. Camp provides the chance for kids to form friendships that they will treasure throughout their lives.
Gan Yisroel for European Tzeirei Hashluchos in Sweden began in 5769, and since its inception, hundreds of campers have attended from dozens of cities around Europe, returning home glowing with a renewed chayus in Shlichus, hiskashrus and friendship.
“Camp is an important part of a Chassidishe chinuch, ” says Rabbi Alexander Namdar, who directs the camp with his wife Leah. ” The greatest asset is our staff, who are dedicated, warm, caring and full of chayus.”
The wintercamp activities include farbrengens, Tanya baal peh, shiurim, nigunim, games, skiing, ice skating, water palace swimming, night activities, trips, drama, fireside singing, exciting activities and more.
“It’s a real family atmosphere in camp. Just hearing the laughter of kids having a great time, enjoying the fun with their friends is amazing. And there is nothing more beautiful than seeing the chayus during tfillos, learning classes and farbrengens,” says Leah Namdar. “We hope that this spirit will beezras Hashem continue long after camp has ended.”
The camp is a project of Chabad Sweden, together with MyShliach for kids of Shluchim between between 7 and 13 years old. The girls camp also runs a Pioneer Bunk of 14-15 year olds.
Gothenburg, Sweden, called the heart of Scandinavia, is renowned for its clean air, pure water, and close proximity to skiing and other winter sports. The campsite lies at the heart of miles of untouched forest and nature reserves. The campsite leads into the famous Botanical Gardens, with beautiful scenery, waterfalls and majestic trees.
The campsite is on a large piece of land, with access to an indoor swimming pool.
