DETAILS

A brand-new program for Summer 2023, teens will have the opportunity to visit Greece’s most popular sites around Athens, Olympia, and Santorini. Together, we’ll trek to the ancient citadel of Acropolis to see the Parthenon—the temple dedicated to Greek goddess Athena—and venture to the site of the original Olympic Games. Then, we’ll travel to Israel for an enriching experience where teens will dive in and gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be Jewish and proud.
