Young Judaea offers “Year Course,” which is a college accredited, gap year program in Israel. Within this program, Young Judaea offers a counselor track for camp staff, which trains them to become more effective counselors and develop their skills in experiential Jewish educational programming. Each Young Judaea camp nominates up to five counselors-in-training to take part in the program. In order to participate in the program, counselors commit to work at camp for at least two more summers, and each receive a $4,000 stipend. Camp directors provide an additional $1,000 bonus to the participants for each summer the counselor returns to camp.
