Micah in Israel
(Grade 11)

Join the Camp Micah family for an incredible journey to Israel for Micah campers who have completed 10th grade of high school.

There are a wide variety of opportunities to visit Israel but choosing to go with campers who have been together at Micah for years is a unique opportunity. Instilling Jewish values and connecting our youth with their heritage and each other is what we do best at Micah. The Micah in Israel experience is an in depth educational, spiritual, and fun five and a half week excursion, beginning with four days in Poland. Our staff and campers know each other well and carry with them the philosophy and values that they have helped establish at Micah. Jewish tradition, rituals, and culture have always been at the foundation of Camp Micah’s philosophy. The hope is for every participant to return with a new sense of connection to each other and the Jewish people. We also hope they will gain a greater understanding of, and respect for, the complexities of the Middle East and its people.
