As our campers’ age, our programs have more leadership development focus. B’yachad, our 6-week program for high school sophomores focuses on developing their leadership skills. This unique program provides these teens with the skills and the practice to be the future of the Jewish community. The curriculum highlights Avodah (work), Community Service, and Leadership. B’yachad campers create and build special projects around camp and participate in community service projects in camp and in the small towns surrounding camp, including a community service-focused overnight trip. The program culminates in B’yachad Town Hall, where campers give Herzl their advice and ideas for creating a better camp experience for future campers.
If a camper chooses to continue on into our Ozo (staff-in-training) program, they expand their role as camp leaders. Learn more here.
