You’ve invested time and money instilling Jewish values in your children. But are they passionate about being Jewish? This summer, they just might be.
At NCSY, they understand Jewish teens better than anyone. Because they work with them 365 days a year. And they’ve been doing it for over 60 years.
One thing they’ve learned along the way: nothing inspires, motivates, and builds teens like a summer with NCSY. That’s because NCSY Summer is built on a simple mission–provide Jewish teens with a growth-oriented, meaningful, and fun summer.
It starts with their staff and advisers. They have a simple philosophy: hire the best. That means positive and relatable role models who care about each teen and want to make a difference in their lives. Those who can lead a learning group with teens in the morning, play sports with them in the afternoon, and hang out with them at night.
NCSY views summer as the ultimate growth opportunity. It’s when teens are free to make their own choices. And when you put them in a growth-oriented environment with positive reinforcement, they learn to make the right choices. In the summer, during the year, and for the rest of their lives.
After a summer with NCSY, teens come back feeling more connected to their heritage, more appreciative of Shabbat, more committed to davening, and more in love with Israel. Because when you take teens and give them a chance to run a camp for unaffiliated Jewish children in Austria on NCSY JOLT (Jewish Overseas Leadership Training), or learn in a beis midrash with Rav Hershel Schachter on NCSY Kollel, they rarely see things the same way they did before. Years later, past participants look back on their summer with NCSY as a turning point in their religious and spiritual growth. And quite often, the best summer of their lives.
Last summer, the parents and grandparents of 1,100 teens chose to send their kids on one of 12 NCSY summer programs. This summer, as they launch an additional two programs, Camp Maor and JOLT Israel, let them show you what they can do for your child in 42 days or less. After all, you deserve it.
