Oded

$4,100

Leading By Example!
  • For Campers Entering 11th Grade
  • Thursday, 6/24 – Sunday, 7/26
  • “Oded” means to invigorate, and our highly acclaimed Counselor-in-Training and Leadership program is built to do just that. As part of a close-knit team, the Odedim live together in the Oded Village and spend a number of days on an extended outdoor adventure. The Oded program is truly a hands-on training program, as the participants plan programs, lead services, create an Oded Project, run activities, and share responsibility for a cabin of campers. As Odedim, teens learn to look at leadership and life through a Jewish lens. This program involves an application process; not all applicants are accepted. Odedim will need to arrange their own transportation to and from camp.
