Family Camp

A few Szarvas graduates and their friends, who were looking to keep alive for themselves and their families the great Szarvas spirt and experience that they had at camp, created the Manóra Association. They organize this outstanding family camp where a lot of our former campers and madrichim come back here with their own children as participants. Children in this camp are between the ages of 0 and 6 years. For more information, please contact: György Forgács at campjichak@manora.hu.

Holocaust-survivors’ Summer Vacation

The Joint (JDC) Hungary and the MAZS Foundation supports more than 3.500 people out of about 7.000 Holocaust survivors who are still living in Hungary. MAZS aims to provide services in order to give them the opportunity to live their lives with dignity, including staying in their own homes for as long as possible. They are also offered various social, cultural and leisure opportunities where they can be together with others who can understand what they have experienced and, in this framework, they have the opportunity to relax at Szarvas in one of a number of short sessions at the end of the summer.

Camp for kids and adults with developmental disabilities

Szarvas Camp is committed to diversity and opens its doors to people of all abilities. During the summer, we host a camp for developmentally disabled (DD) kids and adults, offering them a fun and memorable experience. There is an array of activities run by experienced staff and experts in special education. As of now, our participants are members of the special needs’ unit of the BZSH-MAZSIHISZ operated Israel Sela Residential Home as well as for the participants of the “teen club” of the Csupaszív Foudation, who live at home with their families.

Written about us

My favorite part of Szarvas was communicating with teens from other countries. Our Jewish roots are the instrument that helps us eliminate the language barrier.
