Aryeh Am3rica is back! This is an incredible trip through the Western United States. This program is jam-packed with incredible activities such as white water hiking in Zion National Park, touring movie studios in Los Angeles, becoming a "guest" at Alcatraz, rock scrambling in Yosemite, and so much more! The leaders of this trip run social education classes steeped in moral values to help our participants grow socially and emotionally. Like all Aryeh trips, Aryeh Am3rica is open to both mainstream and special education teens.
Aryeh Am3rica will be run by Justin Spiro. This will be Justin's sixth time running an Aryeh trip!
This year we're offering two options for
Aryeh Am3rica: our "lighter" trip filled with stops at some of the best tourist attractions in the US...plus an extra week of action-packed activities like white water rafting, cliff-jumping & an all-day Yosemite hike!
Scholarships are available- Contact us for more info.
Aryeh Am3rica is open to all teens finishing grades 8-10 who will come on the trip as mentors, but no more than 20 will be accepted onto the program. Approximately 10-15 campers with some special needs, who are between the ages of 14-21, will also be accepted onto the trip. Our goal is for these individuals to form lasting friendships with our other Aryeh campers and mentors, providing them with a sincere feeling of social inclusion. Unfortunately, individuals with physical disabilities will be unable to join United. Other young men and women with non-physical special needs might also not be able to be a part of Aryeh. We accept each applicant on a case by case basis, but also want to make sure each individual gets the care they need.
Aryeh Adventures is intended for high functioning individuals with special social, mental and/or emotional needs. If you feel your child might be a candidate to be a camper on Aryeh please contact us. Mentors should check with their local synagogues and Federations to see if scholarship funds are available. This is a not for profit program, led by our fantastic volunteer-based staff. Our goal is to create a warm, altruistic environment where Midot Matter Most and every single day is filled with happiness and excitement.
