Register to join the Azekah team for their tenth season, July 17-August 12, 2022

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

Excavating at Azekah costs 2800 NIS per week, which includes accommodation in a shared room with air conditioning and ensuite bathroom, meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), 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.

Our Cancellation Policy

We completely understand that life can change suddenly and force people to cancel their excavation reservation. As a result, there are two different times in the year that volunteers can cancel.

Cancellation before June 30: A full refund, minus a $50 USD registration and banking fee.
Cancellation after June 30: A full refund, minus a $200 cancellation fee for each week, and a $50 USD registration and banking fee.

Cancellation during the season, or without announcement, will receive no refund. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, a new flexible cancellation policy is in place. All fees will be waived in the event we are forced to cancel the excavation or that circumstances related to the pandemic prevent you from entering Israel to join us.
