Joy and Allan Nachman Teen Leadership Trip to Israel

Entering 12th grade

Tamarack Camps, in partnership with Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and community congregations, is excited to offer an Israel trip as the culminating camper experience for teens entering 12th grade. This initiative is geared toward teens interested in becoming future leaders in the community and at camp.

The first half of the summer is in Israel, exploring the country and enhancing leadership skills. Teens will have the opportunity to meet with CEO’s of successful start-up companies, camp in the Negev, and celebrate Jewish life in the midst of some of the finest scenery in the world (just to name a few)! The Israel portion is designed for first-time travelers and those who have previously visited, with a strong emphasis on leadership.

Teens will return to Camp Maas for the second half of the summer, which will include leadership training opportunities, work placements in various areas at camp, and camp activities.

The Israel component will be led by rabbis from our community, along with a tour guide, American counselors, an Israeli counselor, and a medic/security guard.
