JCC Camp Staff (ages 18–26)

Why travel to Israel with us?

Travel with your tribe – those who love camp – with JCC Association and Taglit-Birthright Israel this winter. The trip, for those 18-26, provides an opportunity to experience the Jewish homeland with others who work in JCC camps. Attend this winter – the trip has yet to be scheduled but will take place sometime between mid-December and mid-January – and return to camp energized and excited by all the ways you can incorporate your Israel takeaway next summer!

JCC Boarding Pass Jewish Europe and Israel Trips

Boarding Pass Jewish Europe and Israel Trips is a new program from JCC Israel Center. Participants will have an opportunity to marvel at Europe’s architectural beauty, explore historic sites, and learn about Europe’s rich Jewish heritage.

The Boarding Pass program can be used as an outreach initiative to engage new community members as yet not affiliated with the JCC, or to offer another quality program and connection point for your members. Experience has shown that JCC Boarding Pass trips facilitate meaningful experiences for first-timers, veteran visitors, repeat JCC Boarding Pass participants, and even native-born Israelis involved in JCCs.

Is Boarding Pass offering Europe AND Israel in one package?

After we enjoy the Boarding Pass European destination, the trip will continue to Israel, where travelers will have a chance to connect their European experience with contemporary Israel. The trips will run 12–15 days. We will work with you to create the right trip for your community.
Visits to JCCs and Jewish communities in Europe will be organized by JCC Global.

For more about these trips, download the Jewish Europe and Israel Brochure.
