BBYO Summer

Experience the best of BBYO in the summer with leadership opportunities, fun with friends, discovering new interests, community building and service, exploration and adventure, and meaningful Jewish connections. Our one-of-a-kind summer experiences take place in the US, Israel, Europe, Central and South America, Africa, and Asia. We have options for teens of all ages and experiences that range from 12 days to 6 weeks. Whether at camp, on a college campus, or in a new country, a BBYO summer is an experience to remember with friends you’ll never forget.

LEADERSHIP: These members-only programs pair the values of AZA and BBG—leadership, service, brotherhood and sisterhood—with the best of camp—athletics, swimming, electives, and fun in the sun—for a one-of-a-kind experience with an emphasis on growing skills and friendships.

ISRAEL: Connect with the land, people, and culture of the Jewish Homeland. You can travel from the top of Masada, to the shores of the Dead Sea, and from modern Tel Aviv, to historical Jerusalem.

AMBASSADORS: Experience a unique opportunity to get to know Jewish life in a new country, bond with local peers, explore a new culture, and give back along the way. We currently have programs in Bulgaria and Argentina.

DISCOVERY: Broaden your horizons by experiencing the rich history and contemporary culture of bustling cities and world heritage sites as you take your pick from landmark European destinations.

TREK: Challenge yourself and take in the breathtaking sites as you get to know the lay of a new land, and explore the great outdoors on our most active travel experiences.

BBYO STAND UP: Immerse yourself in a new city, participate in impactful projects in the host community, and bond with lifelong friends over your shared service. We have US and international destinations available.

BBYO ON CAMPUS: Get a genuine taste of college life and learn new skills that can jumpstart your future career. Taking place on the gorgeous University of Michigan campus, this program is the place to be for any teen interested in the business world.

ISRAEL FAMILY JOURNEY: Your whole family is invited to experience the very best of Israel on a Jewish travel experience designed for all ages. Program dates are offered throughout the summer and winter holiday season.

MARCH OF THE LIVING: Come along on a powerful journey with teens and survivors from around the world to bear witness to the tragedies of the Holocaust in Poland and celebrate the Jewish Homeland in Israel.
