Team members are welcome to choose when they would like to join us. You can elect to participate for all four weeks of the season, or you may select individual weeks in which to participate

The cost of excavating at Azekah begins at 3,080 NIS per week which is discounted the longer you join us. This cost includes your excavation accommodation, meals, transportation to and from the site, guest lectures, classes, tours and more! This fee does not cover accommodation or food over the weekend (Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon), or flights to Israel. We also highly recommend that you personally acquire travel insurance to ensure you are covered for all possible costs.
