Summer Camp 2019-20
As the weather gets wilder, the days get even hotter, what better way to enjoy your holidays than a grand escape to nature with SKIF. A fun filled 2 week camp for juniors, and a 2 and a half for seniors, offers all the adventure one would need!!! That’s right it’s Summer 2019-20, and it’s going to rock and roll. Bring a friend and experience the very best of a Victorian Summer around 3 hours out of Melbs at SKIF camp where dreams come true and imaginations run wild. Be cool and don’t miss out on the best camp of the year. Remember, it’s going to be hot, really hot. So bring your SKIF shirts and drink bottles!!!
What Do We Do
On camp, the helfer (the fully trained leaders) will be running activities for the SKIFistn where we aim to help open the eyes of our SKIFistn to the big wide world that we live in, encouraging them to be actively involved in making it the kind of place in which they would like to live.
SKIFistn have a fun packed day where they do activities based on SKIF’s ideologies, arts and crafts, play sport, sing, go for a shpatz (walk), hang out with their friends and the helfer and many more fun activities. The helfer work hard to make sure that every child has an enjoyable time on camp and comes home with exciting stories to tell.
