Any day of the week, family chatter and the happy shouts of children fill the air at Mini Israel. In its eleventh year of popularity, the park offers a tour of Israel in miniature. Conveniently situated in the foothills near Jerusalem, and just a half hour from Israel's tourist hub, Tel Aviv, the venue is accessible by car and by bus.
What time is it? It's summer time! Israel's children look forward all year to the long vacation. There is no shortage of sunshine, and so many activities to choose from. First of all, there is every parent's favorite: summer school! Then, there are week-long nature camps, and day camps featuring a plethora of hobbies and crafts.
Israel actively loves her children! Israel is one of the few countries in the world continuously working to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all young people - how wonderful to see youngsters playing together in the parks without a care, their shouts and laughter filling the air on hot summer nights - or taking buses on their own to and from school and activities.
