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.

Machol Hungaria

This “Szarvas-inspired”, international Israeli folk dance camp, each year creates its uniquely special atmosphere through the presence of a few hundred dancers from more than ten countries. Dance classes are led by professional, Israeli dance teachers and there are both beginners and advanced courses. For more information, visit the website: www.machol.eu or write to the e-mail address: info@macholhungaria.com (Forgács György).

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.

Camping of the disabled

Considering the huge success of Szarvas, and our love for running camps, we also decided to run a Spring Camp, in partnership with the Hungarian youth movements. There is no better warm up for our summer program than coming to this and meeting up with old friends and new friends to be. The summer is too far away? Our offer: we bring it closer! We are waiting for you, too!

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.
