Livnot Terms & Conditions
- Deposit / Non-Refundable Application Fee
- Space Allocation
Spots on Livnot programs are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis to those applicants who have completed the application process, including an interview, completion of all forms, requirements and payments of deposits and fees.

During the program, Livnot is responsible to provide reasonable living accommodations as determined by Livnot staff. A person who requires different arrangements for health or other reasons bears all financial responsibility for those arrangements, including any and all payments and fees.
- Medical Coverage
It is essential that each participant is covered by medical insurance that is valid in Israel for the duration of the program.

A participant who is unable to provide these details will be charged $20 for the week and be placed under Livnot’s medical insurer.
Please Note: Psychological disorders are not covered by the health insurance provided. That means that treatments for such conditions are the sole responsibility of the participant.
Due to the nature of the program, its demands and content, Livnot does not accept to the program people diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.
- Free Time
The participant is responsible, financially and otherwise, for their transportation and other expenses while on free time. Livnot responsibility resumes upon the participant’s return to the program.
- Safety and Security
Participants are required to follow all safety and security guidelines as defined by Livnot (these safety and security guidelines are in accordance with those of the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel). This is true throughout the duration of the program, on hikes, tours, at all facilities and during any and all programmed free time. Livnot staff instructions, whether written or verbal, are to be followed at all times for the safety and security of the participant, staff and group and any and all others interacting or connected with the program and/or group in any way.
Violence of any sort, as determined by Livnot staff, is not tolerated on the program. It is grounds for immediate dismissal.
- Drugs and Alcohol
Drug use is illegal in Israel. It is not permissible to use or possess illegal drugs on this program. If you get caught, you get deported.
Please do not bring any alcohol on campus. Abuse of alcohol as determined by the Livnot staff is grounds for dismissal from the program.
- Sexuality Issues
There is no coed sleeping on campus (be sensitive to your roommates!). If someone hassles you, in any way, let us know immediately – whether it’s in town or on campus, whether it’s a stranger or a participant or even a staff member. Sexual harassment whether physical or emotional, is grounds for immediate dismissal from the program.
Please be sensitive to others in the community; for example, refrain from using offensive language or saying things that could embarrass people or hurt people’s feelings.
- Married Couples
Livnot will make a reasonable effort to provide a married couple with joint living arrangements. These decisions will be based on space, room availability, financial considerations and group dynamics issues. There may be times when a couple will be separated to male/female rooms with other roommates if the need arises. Livnot reserves the right to make such decisions as it sees fit.
- Dietary Restrictions
Livnot makes every effort to accommodate people’s individual dietary needs to a reasonable degree, as determined by Livnot staff. In the event that a person’s dietary needs cannot be accommodated, as decided upon by Livnot staff, the participant becomes financially responsible for his/her own requirements.
