Convention attendees are entitled to full access to all park facilities, including the natural rock pools, waterfalls, warm springs etc. So do not hesitate to bring along friends or family members who don’t juggle (yet!).
The park, the campsite, and the entire convention grounds are fenced, guarded and kept safe and secure day and night throughout the convention.
The focus of convention activity will be in the large gym and in the adjacent grassy meadow. Those coming by car need to park in the “Homa Umigdal” parking area (you will be directed there by the people at the gate of the park), cross the bridge over the stream and from there it is only a short walk to the clearly visible gym building, across the grassy camping hill. The distance from the parking area to the campsite/gym is about 250 meters.
There will be no possibility of entering the camping area or near the gym with a car.
This year, ice bags will be avaliable for sale on the convention site.
