Yalla! A First-Time Camp Experience 

Throughout Israel, the phrase “Yalla” can be heard, meaning let’s go!

Let’s go:

  • Build friendships
  • Learn independence and self-discovery
  • Zip lining
  • Swim and kayak in the lake
  • In the pool
  • Trek through the mud obstacle course
  • Try new things
  • And much more!

Yalla campers experience all of the joys and adventures of Capital Camps with just a little extra–a higher camper to staff ratio, smaller cabins–and all first-time campers will participate in activities as a cohort to maximize relationship building and counselor care.
