Camp Seneca Lake's "CSL in Israel" program is our immersive Israel experience for 16-year-olds/entering high school juniors. This month-long program exposes participants to the beauty, depth, and complexity of Israel from the inside out. Participants will travel the entire country - hiking, touring, tasting, learning, and exploring. Each Shabbat will be celebrated with a different community, enabling participants to experience some of the many ways that Israelis celebrate and observe Shabbat. The program includes time at several kibbutzim, as well as in all major cities. Additionally, the participants will spend some time with families in Modi'in, Rochester's "P2G" community in Israel.
Camp Seneca Lake works with Authentic Israel to operate this great program. Authentic Israel has almost thirty years of experience operating tours for teens and families. They have extensive experience operating teen summer trips. CSL staff work closely with Authentic Israel to ensure the CSL in Israel experience best meets our community's needs. On the ground during the summer, Authentic Israel provides a licensed tour guide with experience working with teens, a medic/security guard, and a bus driver, while CSL provides a trip leader and additional supporting staff.
Camp Seneca Lake is proud of our CSL in Israel program, and of our commitment to helping our teenage campers experience Israel through CSL. Please don't hesitate to contact Camp with questions about this great new addition to the CSL program.
