Our philosophy

as a youth-led community

is built on the value of collective responsibility.

 

This means we see each person’s unique spark and understand that we all play a part in making the community what it is. We believe that when we create a community based on the values we want to see in society - equality, democracy and interdependence - we become more able to bring light into the world.

Avodah

Working Together

We all work together to take care of camp. Avodah cultivates a sense of personal responsibility and pride in the place we call home for the summer - we see that camp is a place that really does belong to every single one of us.

Shabbat

Making Judaism Personal & Relevant

Shabbat at Gilboa is an experience we all create together. Every week, each age group takes turns preparing a different aspect of Shabbat (baking challah, creating the Oneg, writing a blogpost, singing a Kabbalat Shabbat song, presenting a blessing, and cleaning and setting up the dining hall.) When the whole camp comes together on Friday evening, we celebrate each other's contributions.

Kupa

Camp is a place where each person is valued equally. Kupa is our “give what you can, take what you need” system that allows everyone to contribute to their kvutzah’s (age group) communal resources, according to what they are able. Kupa allows us to take care of each other and ensure everyone’s needs are met. Read More...
