Register Now: JCC Camp Staff Trip to Israel!



Experience Israel on an amazing Taglit-Birthright Israel trip this winter with other JCC camp staff, age 18-24. Travel with your tribe—those who love camp—and be exposed to the diversity and excitement of Israel, from its ancient past to the “start-up nation” it is today. Return to camp next summer with a greater love for and understanding of everything that is Israel! Through your personal experiences you will learn new and meaningful ways to bring Israel back to your camp and community. Anyone who has participated on a peer trip to Israel before the age of 18 is now eligible* for a second chance to see Israel through a different lens.

What last year’s participants have to say:

Each person had something to offer to the trip, and each camp provided the others with something to bring back to our own camps for the upcoming summer. I wouldn’t have wanted my birthright experience to be any different, and would recommend the JCC Camp trip to anyone considering it. Thanks for the memories RT-31-179! – Brian Chessin

Camp people are the best kind of people—they’re fun to be around, often times goofy just like me, and there’s no one in the world that I’m more comfortable around. This is why being in the greatest country on earth with the greatest people on earth was just about the best experience I could have ever asked for. I’m so thankful for the incredible opportunity I had to relive my camper days, reunite with old friends, make new ones, and create “One Camp” all the while being in Israel. – Sydney Ungar
