Since its establishment in 1995 by OU Israel and NCSY, Camp Dror, a two and a half week Orthodox Jewish sleepaway camp for youth entering grades 5-10, has provided hundreds of boys and girls from Israel and around the world with a unique combination of summer fun, Zionism and Torah learning. Located in Israel’s majestic north, Camp Dror offers a wide array of activities, including hiking, kayaking, learning, Chesed projects, swimming, sports, arts and crafts, and more. The boys camp is located in Hispin, and the girls camp in Moshav Keshet, both in the beautiful Golan Heights.

Our mature and experienced staff create a warm atmosphere in which deep and lasting relationships with the campers and between the campers flourish. The easygoing and open atmosphere allows campers to grow, each in their own unique way, while meeting new friends from diverse backgrounds including Hebrew- speaking Israelis, English-speaking Israelis, and youth from all over the world. While they enjoy all the fun of a summer sleepaway camp, our campers also learn about themselves, their heritage and homeland, and about other Jewish communities and traditions. Camp Dror: A Summer Experience like No Other.
