Every year many residents enjoy mini-vacations within Israel. Residents are divided into small groups, based on interests, abilities and personal preferences and travel within Israel for 2-3 day themed get-aways. Groups may go hiking, camping or touring but regardless, everyone enjoys the vacation from routine.
Leisure and extracurricular activities are supervised by the staff with the assistance of the volunteers
