The Ash Levi Leadership Camp
The Ash Levi Leadership Camp is BJE’s signature leadership development program. At this camp, Year 11 students develop crucial leadership skills that enable them to become active change-makers in our Jewish community and broader society.
Key aspects of the Camp include:
- Development of lifelong leadership capabilities (including being role models to others) as well as teamwork, relationship-building and communication skills;
- In-depth engagement about taking personal responsibility for actions and the world we live in; and
- A reunion opportunity for students who attended the BJE Israel Program in Year 10.
The Camp location varies from year to year and for security reasons is disclosed a week before camp to registered participants only. The camp is usually held within a 2 hour drive of Sydney.
BJE arranges a private coach to take all students to and from the Ash Levi Leadership Camp. They are picked up from (and dropped back to) an agreed pick-up point, one in the Eastern Suburbs, and one on the North Shore. BJE Madrichim (youth leaders) are also on the coach and supervise the students.
Yes, there will always be someone in attendance who is first-aid certified and able to help with medical-related issues and emergencies.
Leadership Camp runs from Thursday morning to Sunday. School principals are notified in advance and most have no issue with students attending Leadership Camp.
BJE’s policy is that no child should miss out on attending camp for financial reasons. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
