Boston area Camp Trips
Almost all of the local-area Jewish overnight summer camps offer an Israel extension once your child’s camping years are complete but before they transition into staff.  Generally, these trips are for participants who have been attending camp for a few years.  For more information, contact your local camp directors.  Here is a list of our area camps that have Israel trips: Camp Ramah New England (Ramah Seminar), JCC Camp Kingswood, the Cohen Camps (Tevya, Tel Noar, and Pembroke), Camp Young Judaea in New Hampshire, Camps Eisner and Crane Lake (through NFTY) and Camp Micah.
