HILA CAMPING HUT

Three enchanting cabins isolated from each other in a gorgeous oak forest.

This is a place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life

and enjoy the fresh air and unique atmosphere.

The location offers hiking trails that are in walking distance

or a short drive away

(although most people prefer to stay in and enjoy the cabin).

 

The Cabin

A Green Version of Sinai

Located deep among the oak trees,

this warm cabin offers a unique camping experience.

* This is a place to unplug from the T.V., computer and yes… even the cell-phone, spend time among the thick oak tree forest and wake up to the sound of song birds.

* During the rainy days of winter a fire place will warm you and the atmosphere up, while you enjoy a comfortable dry and cozy corner exclusive to only you and nature.

*There is no greater pleasure than looking out at the rain-washed forest.

*During the summer you can enjoy the soft breeze and the cool shade of the oaks.

 

*The cabin includes a common room for sleeping on matrasses,

a fully equipped kitchenette, shower and toilet.

*You will also find a special outdoor fire-camp sitting and barbecue area

in your own private forest.

 

* Mitzpe Hila is walking distance from Nahal Kziv (a long perennial stream), the Monfort Castle and additional attractions that your host, Offer Abel, a professional tour guide, will happily tell you about.

 

Various private workshops can also be booked at a discount in advance, or you can join other activities at the Ancient Crafts Center.

*The cabin can host up to 8 people.

There are pillows and blankets in the cabin. Please bring your own linen and towels.

 

Minimum cost for up to 4 people 450 NIS per night + 60 NIS for each additional person.

Initiation, Bonding and Empowerment Journeys
for Bar/Bat Mitzvah youths,
parent and child, couples, and families
 
"It was exciting! The boys were on an amazing high! I have never seen them so proud of themselves, ever…" (a teacher's response after an outdoors initiation journey with teenage boys)

An empowerment journey is a one-to-five day camping trip, where the participants navigate the route, carve their own cutlery out of wood, light fires using ancient methods, get to know edible plants, cook on open fires, and learn about the night, and most importantly, have profound physical and spiritual experiences that are processed together and projected onto real life. The journey is a powerful experience that enhances the belief in one's own capabilities.

Who is it for?

*    Coming of age ceremony (Bar/bat Mitzvah) –

      a return to the tradition of tribal coming of age ceremonies.

*   One or two youths, or a maximum of ten, who want an empowering experience to strengthen their self-confidence.

*   A parent who would like a shared bonding experience with his or her child.

*   A couple who would like a bonding experience.

*   A family who would like a profound shared experience.

 

     According to the "Strengths Perspective":

*   All humans have strengths and are capable of much more than they tend to believe.

*   Pressure and difficult situations expedite processes of self-discovery and development.

*   It is possible to achieve significant, long-term, learning and transformative effects through a short, yet very intense experience.

*   Self-evaluation – what the person thinks of her or himself is one of the most influential factors on his or her situation

     and future.

The outdoors is an amazing tool for applying this theory.
