Program Description: 

A 12 day experience that will change the life of a teenager, this overnight camp is based on a model developed by Jewish Agency for Israel (or Sahnut) for teen camps world-wide.  The camp model is a combination of activities and discussions; reflections and creative expression; role-playing games and facilitated group work, all focused on exploring the Jewish Identity of a teenager in a non-forceful, secular manner. The program is balanced with sports, swimming, motor and non-motor water sports, obstacle courses and zip lines, arts and music, evening activities and dance parties. A collaborative project of Marks JCH, Jewish Agency for Israel, Shorefront YM-YWHA, and Jewish Child Care Association Bukharian Teen Lounge, this project is made possible with generous funding from the Genesis Philanthropy Group, UJA-Federation of New York & Foundation For Jewish Camp.
