The 2019 Zionist Youth Movement Winter camp season has officially begun and thousands of campers across Australia are currently creating lifelong friendships, exploring their Zionist and Jewish identities and having an absolute blast.

Happy campers

Our Zionist youth movement camps could not take place without the commitment and dedication of our 400 leaders across all 7 movements, Australia wide.

The Australian Zionist Youth Council (AZYC) is the umbrella organisation of the seven Zionist youth movements; Betar, Bnei Akiva, Habonim Dror, Hashomer Hatzair, Hineni, Netzer and Tzofim. While the movements may differ in their unique ideologies, they all place importance on Jewish identity and a love for Israel. Throughout the month of July, there will be 17 Zionist youth movement camps taking place across Australia

The AZYC takes great pride in training our madrichim (leaders) to be able to deliver the best possible camp experience for their chanichim (participants). Each movement has madrichim trained in Certificate 2 First Aid and in Mental Health First Aid. All of our movements are strongly committed to the AZYC Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy.

For the first time, the AZYC invited all leaders to participate in highly successful pre-camp training sessions in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Specialist professional organisations including Tzedek, Jewish Care, CSG and Friendship Circle Sydney presented the leaders with informative, educational and engaging workshops on safety, security and wellbeing.

AZYC Chairperson, Noa Shaul said, “This year’s pre-camp training was extended to all madrichim, not just those leading camp and the heads of our movements. Due to its great success and great feedback from madrichim, we are looking forward to hosting similar pre-camp training sessions in the lead up to all summer and winter camp seasons.”

“The AZYC is proud to have achieved accreditation from the Australian Childhood Foundation. Our priority is to ensure that our movements provide a safe and secure environment for all of our chanichim, a responsibility we take extremely seriously.”
