Who We Are

Moadon HaYamiya – Acre is a not-for-profit registered organization whose purpose is

the promotion of maritime education and sports.

The club’s activities include sailboats sailing, kayak activities for children and adults

with special needs. Operating in collaboration with the “Ohalo” Academic College of Education and Sport.

What We Do

Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.

Kayak and Swimming

The kayak activities evolved in the club and became a distinguished form of motoric enrichment for Down's Syndrome and other special needs people.

Paddling the kayak enriches the participants with a unique source of pleasure and offers a social experience of working as a group.

On top of that, it improves their balance, their motoric skills and boosts their self-confidence.

Along with paddling the kayak, the activity includes swimming (in the summer months), playing on the beach and presents an opportunity for social gatherings like birthday parties, etc.


“One on One”

The “one on one” tutoring is based on volunteers.
It is carried out mainly by students from several schools: "Ort Acre" and "Misgav" high-schools (as part of their self-commitment project), “Ohalo” College students (active in the "Perach" Tutorial Project), students from the Talmudic college in Acre, students from "Nirim" boarding school for youth at risk.
Other tutors are caring people from the region and family members, with parents highly involved.

The Spirit

Every Friday at noon ( summer and winter ) the participants and tutors arrive at the club to take part in the kayak paddling activity.
Following a preparation stage ( Kayaks , equipment  and wearing the life jacket), each participant sets out in the kayak with his personal tutor.
In addition to the paddling practice, the participants perform other practices to develop balance, spatial orientation and self-confidence, as a result of which some of the participants are able to paddle independently.
