Summer is not for school, it’s for experimenting and creating while having loads of fun. #BIGIDEA offers all of this and more.

Through the workshops, we enable campers to burst beyond boundaries of imagination with constant encouragement.
# Mutual Respect & Tolerance
Campers and counselors from Israel and United States make up our camp community. This gathering allows participants to explore and experience a multi-cultural society. Everyone will add their touch to the community and gain from exposure to others.
# Israel Connection
Raising the story of modern Israel’s success in technology and development will create pride and connection with Israel and Jewish culture.
At #BIGIDEA, participants with many skills, interests and background create a platform for each to find leadership strengths in many areas: technological, social or something unique.
