Leadership Camp

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.

"I love that the Ash Levi Program gave me the opportunity to think for myself about things that I’ve never really thought about before."
"The program was extremely beneficial for everyone on the camp. It was well thought out and was executed perfectly by all of the leaders involved.”
