I went on IBC in 2015 and chose Camp Kimama for my 7-month option. It was such an eye opening experience and a real opportunity for growth. Not many of my friends chose to do it so it was my first time going on a program by myself. It was a very liberating experience and I got to meet so many new and amazing people. Despite being the youngest madricha (because all the Israelis have finished the army) I learned so much and had so much fun getting to know everyone. I went to camp carmel which is a smaller and more intimate camp compared to michmoret which I really enjoyed because everyone was so friendly and you really feel needed and appreciated. The ages of the kids range from 8 to 18 and come from a lot of different places but predominantly Israel. It's a great opportunity to improve and practice your Hebrew. Being completely responsible for your kids for 2 whole weeks is a crazy thing, but I've never learned so much about myself and about my own capabilities in such a short time. I've never sang and danced so much in my life. It definitely requires a lot of energy because after going crazy with the kids all day you want to wind down and all the madrichim chill altogether. After camp I think I slept for a week. I would highly recommend Kimama to anyone looking for a unique and adventurous couple of weeks.
