The KKL-JNF Fields and Forest centers are located in green forests, between hills filled with flowers, and offer their visitors an educational experience, which brings together environmental principals along with Zionism.
Due to ongoing construction, changes may occur in the centers' details.

What are the Field and Forest Centers?

Between the trees are big tents and wooden cabins. Each tent includes eight beds and the wooden cabins include four or five beds, a shower, a refrigerator, adjunct restrooms and an air conditioner.

The walled and secured centers include special "trip fields" for overnight camping, open-air and indoor classrooms, sport and recreation facilities, and resting spots among the trees – all allow for an educational learning experience.

A skilled team of guides welcomes visitors at the centers and holds special field activities and tours.

In addition, the centers are also used for educational programs for the public.
