Camp Dror is one of the first summer camps in the State of Israel, a camp with a tradition of excellence and affection for the Torah, the people, and the land. Since its establishment in 1995, Camp Dror the OU Israel summer sleep-away camp has provided a religious and values-based environment during the summer for immigrant youth from Anglo-Saxon countries, Israeli born campers, and Jewish youth from around the world.
The Camp Dror program has two programs – the lower camp- Camp Dror, and the upper camp- the Fagin Leadership Program. Camp Dror is for campers entering fifth – ninth grades. The Fagin Leadership Program (Manhigut) is for campers entering grades ten and eleven.
On the first day of camp, Camp Dror campers will meet at a central meeting point, go on a tiyul as separate campuses, and arrive in the early evening to their respective campuses. The Fagin Leadership Program (Manhigut) begins their session with three days (2 nights) in Jerusalem. On the third day they travel to their respective campuses and engage in the full camp program of Camp Dror.
