International athletic camp

In 2009, the L'Tsafon Sport Youth Center organized an international athletic camp in Israel. Seventy Russian-speaking teens between the ages of 13 and 18 took part, including 50 participants from Israel and 20 representatives of the Moscow children's soccer club, Maccabi.

The camp program included workout and training sessions, as well as competitions in a variety of sports. GPG provided funding for several activities, which allowed camp participants to learn about Jewish traditions, holidays and important events in Israeli history, including several seminars and excursions dedicated to Israeli history and a theater club.

The project received support from the Municipality of Haifa, the Israeli Ministry of Immigrant Absorption and the Pa'amei Tikva Foundation.
