Pioneer Israel Trip
We are thrilled to offer our Pioneers the option to participate in a 2nd session educational trip to Poland and Israel designed to strengthen participants’ Jewish identities, their connections to the Land of Israel, and sense of belonging within a community of Jewish leaders. The trip begins in Poland, continues in Israel, and culminates back at camp, allowing participants to fully engage in and process their experiences before returning to camp where they’ll generalize and apply their learnings.

Flight and Travel
The trip insurance companies we recommend are Program Protector and World Nomads. The enhanced option with Travmark offers the cancel anytime protection up to 2 days before the trip, which World Nomads does not offer. You’ll notice a difference in price between the companies and their policies as well which reflects the levels of coverage you’d receive in each plan.
