ESRA Tiberias - Jordan Valley Visit to the Jordan River Village

ESRA Tiberias - Jordan Valley Branch

Guided tour of the Jordan River Village

The Jordan River Village is a unique overnight camp for children living with chronic, serious or life-threatening illnesses and disorders as well as children with special needs.

Following enthusiastic reports from many friends who have visited the Jordan River Village we have arranged a visit with an English speaking guide.  This is an opportunity to visit one of the most amazing and dynamic organisations in our area.

The Jordan River Village officially opened in 2011, with actor Chaim Topol as Chairman. It is one of only 16 camps around the world that is part of Paul Newman’s world-wide Serious Fun Children’s Network, a global community of independently managed and financed camps and programs serving children with serious illnesses and their families.  

The Village offers unforgettable, fun and medically safe experiences to all children living with serious or chronic illnesses in Israel at no cost to their family.

Children who visit the Village have the experience of a lifetime. They leave their illnesses at the door, and participate in the broad range of camp activities enabling them to have fun, succeed, come together, and discover new things. In addition, campers meet other children who face challenges similar to their own, and make life-long friends, and circles of support.

Suggestion: bring along an early picnic supper - there are plenty of suitable picnic spots in the area
