Camp Counselor Training on the Occupation @ Boston, MA
May 25 @ 5:00 pm – May 27 @ 5:00 pm
Camp Counselor Training on the Occupation @ Boston, MA | Boston | MA | United States

Join Jewish Camp counselors from across the country on Memorial Day Weekend to learn how to teach campers about the complexities of Israel, Palestine, and the 50-year-long Occupation.

There are many pre-camp trainings and seminars — but there’s never been one like this.

This summer, for the first time ever, Jewish camp counselors will come together to learn how to talk to their campers about the realities of the Israeli Occupation. Together, we will co-create a meaningful and challenging environment with other young Jews that share a commitment to Jewish community and an end to the Occupation.

As is evident in the #YouNeverToldMe campaign testimonials, Jewish counselors and teachers have struggled with honest Israel education for years. But we know that this is bigger than one camp or one counselor changing one summer’s curriculum — if we want to see real transformation in our community, we need to build a movement.

When: May 27th, 2018! (there will be an optional Shabbaton to build community together on May 25-26 for anyone who is interested. AND we encourage everyone to stay for the official IfNotNow Orientation Training on Monday May 28th.

Where: Boston!!

Cost: TBA — it will be sliding scale and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Travel stipends will be available to those who need them.
