Available Spots Filling Quickly For NCSY Summer Programs

24 Apr 2009

As the end of the school year rapidly approaches, a few openings are still available on some NCSY summer programs, but interested students are urged to act quickly because spaces are filling up. Two programs, The Jerusalem Journey (TJJ) and JOLT, have already closed and are now accepting names for waiting lists.

David Cutler, Director of NCSY Summer Programs, declared, “Despite the economic downturn, the numbers on our programs are doing well because our high quality product brings teens back year after year. There are still spaces available as well as scholarship assistance.”

The programs with openings include:

• GIVE (Girls Israel Volunteer Experience): This program will provide girls (grade 9-12) with the opportunity to volunteer at Israeli food banks, hospitals, and camps for child victims of terror; collect clothing for the poor, as well as tour Israel and participate in outdoor activities.
• ICE (Israel Create your own Experience): This co-ed program (grades 10 and 11) will enable teenagers to experience Israel, from the mountains of the Galilee to the canyons of the Negev Desert.
• Kollel: Boys (grades 9-12) will intensify their commitment to Judaism from beginners to advanced learning classes, while playing sports, engaging in recreational activities and touring Israel.
• Michlelet: Girls (Grades 9-12) will learn Torah on beginners through advanced levels, while touring Israel and participating in recreational and volunteer activities.
• SEG (Summer Experience for Girls): Located in New York’s Catskill Mountains, SEG gives girls (grades 8-12) an opportunity to travel to Hershey Park, New York City and other attractions, as well as to choose from a variety of activities including swimming, sports, art, horseback riding, and aerobics. The program also includes interactive classes given by rabbis, teachers and experienced advisors.
• Camp Sports: Located in a Baltimore suburb, boys (grades 8-12) at all levels of learning will play sports and participate in other camp activities while studying and growing in Torah.
