Students Train Students at Ein Carmit Residence Preparatory Camp

During the second week in July, 25 students who will be attending SAE’s Ein Carmit Residential Campus for the first time this Fall attended preparatory camp.

The new students were assisted by Ein Carmit returning residents who had completed 9th or 10th grade and who participated in a special training session in late June.

The group experienced a busy week of enrichment activities, area tours and group events to prepare them for life in the Residence, including swimming and a trip to the Tisch Family Zoological Gardens, locally known as the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo.

Ein Carmit is a pluralistic co-ed residence established in 2000 in the Jerusalem hills with 110 students, mostly from disadvantaged communities across Israel.  Students study in area high schools and receive tutoring and mentoring support.
