The Machon Plus Experience

After an amazing experience on Young Judaea’s Machon program, bring Israel back to Tel Yehudah.  Going to Israel on Machon is an unmatched experience creating memories and relationships that will last a lifetime.  Somehow it just got better.  Introducing Machon Plus!  This extended version of Machon brings you back to Tel Yehudah after Israel to further your experience.

Upon your return to TY you will have the opportunity to work at camp in a junior staff role, share your experiences with younger campers, and earn a little money doing it or get a jump start on your Year Course payments.  You will share duties with many parts of camp, work with the operational staff, and plan programs about your experiences in Israel. You will also take part in special sessions and a seminar to help you develop ideas to share your experiences in Israel with campers and  your community.

Machon Plus gives the opportunity for young adults to have an unparalleled Israel experience, lead and engage teens, earn money and have fun!
