Israel Scouts Chetz V’Keshet
Chetz V'Keshet has been bringing teenagers who finished 9th -12th grade from all over the world to Israel for a 4-week summer program. Our teens experience Israel's culture, heritage, language, and society as they tour the beautiful country.
We hike, bike, swim and travel all across Israel while learning about its people and rich history. Each participant engages in several volunteer activities and completes 65+ hours of community service during the program. During Gadna week our participants will get to experience hands-on army training and educational activities with Israel Defense Forces (IDF) commanders.
What makes Chetz V'Keshet truly unique is our Israeli participants--25% of our participants are Israelis who are members of the Israeli Tzofim youth movement and are chosen based on their personality and ability to communicate in both English and Hebrew. Our counselors are all Israeli's who are fluent in English, have completed their army services and mastered our intensive training course.
People to People
Join a Proud Tradition
People to People International Travel Programs turn the world into a classroom, creating an educational and inspirational experience that cultivates meaningful connections between people of different countries. For over 60 years we have embodied the vision of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who founded People to People International in 1956. We go beyond typical sightseeing tours and create unique, immersive moments that truly connect students to the people, places and cities they are visiting.
We offer 8-31 day all-inclusive travel programs to Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Asia, Africa and Costa Rica for 12-18 year old students.
Here is what makes us different:
We provide our students with “behind the scenes” access, whether it’s meeting a former member of Parliament in London, to meeting with a survivor of a WWII concentration camp in Germany.
We believe in doing community service as a way of giving back to the people and places we visit, from volunteering in an orphanage in Costa Rica, to working alongside Irish teens while cutting peat to provide a heat source for the local elderly.
We feel one of the most genuine and immersive ways to connect to a new culture is to experience the day-to-day life of locals, whether it’s participating in a homestay in Spain or biking through the windmill arms in the Netherlands with Dutch students.
We give students the opportunity to step outside their comfort ones and participate in local, team building outdoor activities, such as rappelling down the side of a medieval castle in Italy to whitewater rafting in Scotland.
We teach our students to be more self-aware, the discover their own interests, become more independent and return home as global citizens.

Summit Camp and Travel
Summit Camp, Travel, and Weekender Programs offer unique opportunities for our teens with social and learning challenges, ADHD, LD, and ASD/HFA.

Summit teen travel provides organized, structured, and well supported itineraries that take our teens wonderful places here and abroad. Summit Weekenders in the NYC and DC areas are a great “youth retreat” style outings that takes place for teens during the school year- a quick Friday-Sunday adventure with peers that offer the type and level of support our teens need: a 5:1 staff ratio with a structured itinerary and trained staff.
