This camp will include:

  • Meetings with Israeli basketball players and coaches

  • Galilee (Mount of Beatitudes, Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Baptism in the Jordan River
  • Nazareth and Bethlehem
  • Tel Aviv and the beaches of the Mediterranean

The entire program in Israel (a $4,000 value) will be free for qualifying participants. In addition, you may be eligible for a subsidy on airfare to Tel Aviv. To qualify you will need to complete 25 hours of volunteer service in your community by May 1 AND provide additional information which you will find in the registration link. A $500 refundable deposit is required to apply and will be returned to you upon completion of all requirements.

NOTE: If the trip is canceled for any reason, you will receive a full refund.

The following are not included:
