The Jewish Agency for Israel is pleased to inform all of their readers that the FSU Summer Camps Blog 2010 is back. In keeping with tradition, this year's blog posts will chronicle key activities taking place in their summer camps, located in 14 different locations across the FSU.This summer there will be close to 5,000 children and youngsters, ages 7 -17, attending the summer camps.

Through the blog, you will meet the campers and their counselors (both local and Israeli counselors) at each camp, find out what they are doing, hear their personal stories, view photos of the summer camps, and come to understand how this unique educational framework impacts upon their lives, propelling them on a life-long journey of self discovery, an exploration of their Jewish roots and heritage, and an increased awareness and connection to their Jewish identity, the Jewish People, and Israel.
