Great Chanukah Gift: Registration For NCSY Summer 2016 Now Open

07 Dec 2015

With Chanukah here already, why not give the teens in your life the gift that won’t stop giving – a spot in an NCSY Summer Program.

NCSY, the Orthodox Union’s international youth program, plays a pivotal role in the lives of Jewish teens around the world. The organization’s multitude of educational and fun-filled activities, retreats and programs, help Jewish teens to connect with and appreciate their Jewish heritage and the land of Israel, as an investment in the future of the Jewish people.

“NCSY Summer Programs are so much more than fun summers — they are life-changing experiences that last a lifetime,” noted David Cutler, Director of NCSY Summer Programs. “Last summer we had over 1,000 participants on NCSY programs and this year we are hoping to have even more.”

NCSY features a variety of summer programs that cater to the many interests of Jewish teens of different ages. Whether teens desire to spend the summer touring, developing their leadership qualities, kicking back and playing sports, performing, giving of themselves in social justice, or learning, NCSY Summer has a program that will fit their niche desires for Summer 2016.

Introducing for Summer 2016, JOLT Israel. As an offshoot of JOLT, this program will heavily focus on enhancing and gaining leadership skills. The teens will tour Israel extensively with incredible staff. A highlight of the summer will be spending ten days creating and running a camp for siblings of cancer patients.

Also brand new to the NCSY Summer programs for 2016, is Camp Maor, for girls grades 4-9 where every girl will get her chance to shine in the spotlight. Participants can look forward to sports, arts and crafts, but most of all the opportunity to develop their performance skills in music, acting and dance.

The summer 2016 NCSY programs include:
