The UJA federation of NY has awarded CTeen – the Chabad Teen Network with summer scholarship grants for NY area teens who wish to attend their summer program – CTeen Xtreme travel camp.
The camp offers separate trips for boys and girls, beginning in Denver and ending in Los Angeles. The itinerary includes exciting outdoor activities, scenic attractions and volunteer projects. Geared mainly for public school teens the camp aims to provide a Jewish summer experience with daily davening, learning and Chabad house visits.
Rabbi Mendy Kotlarsky executive director of Merkos 302 says “The seeds for CTeen Xtreme were planted by Shabbaton participants, who lamented that the experience, lasting just three days, was too short.” Camp directer Rabbi Nachman Rivkin, says “Teens and families interested need to act quickly, the deadline to apply for the grant is March 31st“
The grant is good for any current high school student who resides in the five boroughs of NYC, Long Island or Westchester
