Israel is one of the safest countries in the world! Our local crime rates are among the world’s lowest, and the prevalence of terror attacks on Israeli soil are near negligible. Eilat, the southern tourist city our camp is run out of is extremely safe – and disconnected from any potentially conflict-ridden zone.

Take into account that your guests (non-participants) cannot visit the training centers.
