Chai Negev is an educational activity center located in Kibbutz Revivim – one of the first settlements in Ramat Negev.
At Chai Negev the goal is to bring children closer to the natural world around them in a way that is direct and enjoyable in order to raise their awareness of their environment and heighten their sensitivity to what goes on in it.
Our aim is to nurture children’s understanding of their surroundings and their sense that they have an impact on them, and to instill in them values of responsibility and care for the environment and a connection with the Negev.
Chai Negev is a young center which only opened to visitors in April of 2003, but it has been growing and developing ever since.
