Fun for all


From illness to joy

Zichron Menachem’s camps and retreats offer children with cancer a chance to recharge their physical and emotional batteries, and escape the challenges and worries they face during treatment. Our camps are more than a fun getaway. Away from home, the children – some of whom are taken straight from the hospital to camp - can fully relax and forget about their illness, while bonding with other kids in a similar situation.

Accompanied by a full medical team, the children’s physical and emotional needs are catered for, from blood tests and the regular medications to psychological support. Campers return home with increased confidence and a renewed determination to fight their illness.

  • A chance to breathe

    A chance to breathe

    Back to normality
    When someone in the family is sick, the entire family is affected. The physical and emotional intensity, together with long periods of treatment, can take a toll on everyone. When parents entrust their children to us, and our skilled medical teams, they get a long-awaited opportunity to unwind.
  • Three camps a year

    Seasonal camps

    A much-needed break
    We run three holiday camps a year – in the winter, spring and summer - so it’s never too long before kids with cancer and their siblings can return to days of fun and nights of laughter.

    These camps give kids a break from anxiety and reinforce a sense of optimism for the future.
  • Empowering kids

    Empowering kids

    Awakening their thirst for life
    Cancer patients often feel they have lost themselves, their personality and their dignity while they go through treatment. They sometimes even lose the will to live. With activities from morning until night, along with adventures, parties, singing and more, our camps awaken their senses and give them back their thirst for life.
  • Counselling and support

    Counselling and support

    Healing for the soul
    When kids get a chance to be with others in a similar situation they are able to support each other. Mental health professionals are on hand for one-to-one sessions as well as group therapy.
  • Adventure outings and events

    Daily excursions

    Rediscovering life
    From trips to adventure parks to barbecues with dancing and magic shows, kids on our camps are treated to daily – and nightly – so they can rediscover life without worry.
  • Mobile hospital

    Mobile hospital

    Accompany them at all times
    Our on-site portable hospital is fully equipped with advanced medical equipment and prepared to deal with the patients’ needs at all times.

    Oncologists, psychologists and nurses ensure the children’s physical and emotional welfare and accompany them on all their outings.
