Summer Kef (fun!) awaits children entering grades K-8 at Machaneh Mirowitz. This remote learning experience will give your children a bit of healthy structure and routine with the quality you know you can expect from Mirowitz. For elementary aged children, the program is led by exceptional young adults (all Mirowitz alumni) who will lead back-to-back activities in STEAM, crafts, movement, drama and Israel explorations. The Middle School Program focuses on leadership development and the opportunity to take a deep dive into the arts or Israel. Cooking, music-video production, Israel pop music and virtual field trips with specialists teaching remotely from Israel are all part of the plan!
