  • "My husband and I are wanting to go on the weekend with our family.

    We met at Habonim camp in 1988/89. We would like to book a chalet and will come

    with our three boys - one aged 6, 4 and a baby (due in October!)." ( certainly youngest to ever attend machaneh)

  • " I am working on the assumption that the very strict sleeping arrangements which were enforced between the years 1963 - 1973 will be re-applied, namely that boys are in boys tents and girls are in girls tents? However, I am willing to share a tent with anyone who shared my sleeping bag between the years 1963 -1972."

Letter from the Commitee

Yes, our first Habonim Dror Reunion in South Africa is really happening and its one of the most exciting events in our South African Habo history. Over the years Habonim graduates have not only taken their place in global society but have excelled in so many ways that proves that we are not just a Youth movement, an “aliyah machine” or a great way to meet friends and partners for life!!

Habonim Dror has inspired value-based leadership skills and creativity in individuals who have gone on to lead the world and touch lives in so many spheres, that to name but a few would seem like bragging !

We are so proud to be graduates of this dynamic movement, embracing the changes in society and the environment around us, and watching new generations of chaverim enjoy the camaraderie, ruach and exploration of issues and challenges, fills us with hope and pride in the legacy we pass on.

We may be “graduates” but we live with the ideals and friendships forever. Everyone still knows someone with whom they went to Machaneh; we meet years later and relate as if it were yesterday, and even for those who were not close, the bond is always there, bringing us homeward to Onrus Machaneh.

We are thrilled that you will be with us on this adventure and we look forward to sharing some campfire time and cup or two of hot cocoa (and marshmallows!!)

Memories will always linger…let’s make some new ones together.
