During the summer vacation and during holidays like Sukkot, Hanukkah and Passover, the Yad LaYeled HaMeyuchad – “Lend a Hand to the Special Child” – Recreation Center at the Haifa Hostel holds camps for children with special needs. This project provides their parents and families a few days of rest and relaxation, knowing that their children are well cared for and enjoying fun activities especially designated for them.
The camps operate in cycles of 3-5 days, each cycle catering up to 10 children with 15 counsellors and other staff.
The children enjoy field trips and various other activities including creative workshops. This way the children are not lonely at home, but enjoy social interaction and gain new experiences.
Yad LaYeled HaMeyuchad – "Lend a Hand to the Special Child" association offers through the Haifa Recreation Center a special hosting service. During the week, families with their children, who have special needs, are hosted at a family hotel to rest and replenish their energies and enjoy quality family time.
The stay only covers accommodations, however all the rooms come with fully equipped kitchens for the use of the vacationers. There is a variety of sites and attractions in the area that the entire family can enjoy.
