We will celebrate this milestone for this cornerstone event, that we return to Queensland for the first time in over 25 years.

It’s a great boon for the Brisbane and Gold Coast Jewish communities. The community are opening their homes to billet as many visitors as possible.

Paul Myers, Carnival Manager and his team are working around the clock to create an awesome experience for our Jewish teenagers. Participants from Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and New Zealand will be hosted by families in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.

I cannot think of a better way to spend a week of in summer, than in Queensland, playing sport, alongside your friends, while making new ones. In some cases, lifelong friends, who will meet each other over and over again throughout their Jewish Life.

Junior Carnival has always been a crucial part of Maccabi Australia’s vision. It provides our future with a taste of the fun and spirit that being involved in our organisation brings. It allows our older teenagers to get involved as Youth Leaders, and be trained to become the future leaders in our Community.

It enables us to deliver on our byline of ‘Connecting our Jewish Community through Sport”.

Many families will already be on the Gold Coast enjoying the sunshine and beaches. Paul and his team have arranged daily return transport to Brisbane so that these kids can enjoy Carnival and their parents can still be on Holidays. My family and I are doing just that, holidaying in Queensland whilst our daughter Tali enjoys Carnival with her friends.

Thousands of participants over the years from across the country have caught the Maccabi bug at Junior Carnival. 2012 will again see the return of the legendary foam party, a visit to Wet and Wild and Carnival staples including a communal Shabbat service and dinner.

With over 14 sports to choose from, a trip away with friends and social activities organised on a platter for you every night, what more could you ask for!

So if you’re between the ages 12-17, why haven’t you signed up yet?

The Queensland Community eagerly awaits your arrival, their homes are open, their children are keen to billet you, so don’t miss out on this wonderful experience.
