Explore Israel with Derech Hateva's Israel Trail Teen Adventure summer program!
“At Derech Hateva you grow as a person while having the time of your life." Miriam K. Alum
Spend this summer hiking in Israel, having fun & challenging yourself to the extreme on ITTA!
The Israel Trail Teen Adventure (ITTA) is a month-long outdoor program for Jewish teens between the ages of 14-18 from North America, Israel and around the world. Participants backpack in small groups averaging between 8 -12 teens per group and explore continuous sections of the famous “Israel Trail” (Shvil Yisrael) in the North & South, while hiking with an awareness and respect for Israel's natural beauty. The groups discover how to work as a team, while developing outdoor living and leadership skills, keeping Shabbat in the woods, and learning Jewish and other engaging texts on topics directly relating to their experiences.
The program also includes biking, rock-climbing and volunteering and a special desert trek with camels all along the Israel Trail. Each group has 2-3 highly-trained staff members who act as Israeli nature guides and outdoor skills/Jewish educators, speaking English & Hebrew.
"Derech Hateva teaches, our kids how to be independent, strong mensches who are caring members of a community.” Elena N. Alum Parent
