Israel Scouts Caravan 2017

Israel Scouts - Tzofim Friendship Caravan - July 17th thru July 24th

The Israel Scouts are coming back to Minnesota!! Check our online calendar for specific dates, times and venues; then join us for an evening of fun and high energy with the scouts!!

The Tzofim Friendship Caravan is celebrating over 40 years of bringing excitement, energy and friendship to North America! Founded in 1973, the first Caravan came to the United States to bring a message of hope and peace for Israel. Since that first Caravan, the program has grown to three different Caravans travelling across North America, from New York to California to Wyoming and Tennessee.

Each Caravan is made up of a group of five girls and five boys and their two leaders. They are chosen to be members of the Caravan based on their maturity, fluency in English, and of course their talent in the performing arts. After several rounds of competitive auditions and interviews, the scouts spend a year training and rehearsing for their exciting summer in North America.
