A DAY IN THE LIFE AT BBYO SUMMER EXPERIENCES

image

Flag Raising: Time to come together as a CLTC community and start the day with raising the flag and a few announcements!

Breakfast (Aruchat Boker):
 After morning announcements at the flag pole, everyone heads over to the dining hall for breakfast! Gear up for the day with meals like waffles, pancakes, French toast, cereal, and more. The chapter of the day will lead everyone in singing the blessing after meals (Birkat Hamazon).

Morning Service (Shacharit): Start off every morning with inspiring morning services. Each day, services are led by the chapter of the day and have various themes. Some mornings will be traditional, and others will incorporate things like yoga or pop music! 

Leadership Session: During these sessions, everyone will learn leadership skills that will be useful within BBYO, the community, and in life in a fun and creative way. 

"How-To" Program: “How-To” sessions are time for everyone to learn the ins and outs of the BBYO chapter structure, and gain even more skills! From chapter positions (and what they mean) to parliamentary procedures, from using social media to public speaking, and so much more, this is a great time to learn crucial skills and have some fun doing it.

Chapter Planning Time: Use this time to divide into "mock chapters" (just like your chapter in BBYO) with teens from other BBYO regions to learn tools for how successful chapters function effectively.

Lunch (Aruchat Tzohorayim): Time for lunch! Enjoy chatting with friends about the morning over quesadillas, pizza, hamburgers, or other awesome meals. If you’re a vegetarian or want even more variety, there's always a salad bar and sunflower butter and jelly available. 

Chapter Program/Evaluation: Spend the afternoon with your mock chapter as you participate in two programs. Throughout the session, you'll get to see and feel what a successful chapter program is like. Toward the end, you'll have the opportunity to be part of planning and running these programs!

Free Time (Chofesh): Take a break from the day and enjoy some free time. This is the perfect opportunity to hang out with friends under the Perlman tree and play guitar, visit canteen, or take a dip in the pool. Relax and have fun!

Flag Lowering:
 Regroup as a CLTC community before evening activities!

Dinner (Aruchat Erev): Dinner time! Dinners include chicken, pasta, and BBQ, to name a few. Again, the salad bar and sunflower butter and jelly are always available. Make sure to listen for evening announcements before the blessing after meals (Birkat Hamazon). 

Chapter Program/Evaluation: Every evening, come back to your mock chapter for two more amazing programs designed to form bonds and build leadership within your chapter. 

Snack and Friendship Circle: Spend the last hours of the day with your friends, the perfect way to end a great CLTC day before everyone heads off to bed!

Morning Service (Shacharit): Start off every morning with inspiring morning services. Each day, services are led by a different dorm and have various themes. Some mornings will be traditional, and others will incorporate things like yoga or pop music!

Jewish Learning Sessions (Limmud): Most mornings begin with a Limmud session led by Jewish Educators. These sessions are great opportunities for the ILTC community to share their ideas and develop their Judaic values. Daily topics range from Jewish identity to Israel, from diversity to belonging, and so much more! Classroom sizes vary from 20 to 40 teens, and teens get to choose the topics that interest them.
 
Leadership Sessions (BluePrint): Each day at ILTC has a different theme to help teens learn everything about leadership and BBYO—recruitment strategies, international leadership, programming, and so much more. Teens discuss big topics and try to put them into a practical form so they can see our Movement grow. BluePrint groups are led by BBYO staff who help teens apply these topics to their home regions and chapters. 

Lunch (Aruchat Tzohorayim): Time for lunch! Enjoy chatting with friends about the morning over quesadillas, pizza, hamburgers, and other awesome meals. If you’re a vegetarian or want even more variety, there's always a salad bar and sunflower butter and jelly available. 

Electives (Chugim): Choose from fun camp electives like going to the lake, archery, ropes course, arts and crafts, Israeli dancing, music, and more! Either choose one at the beginning of ILTC to stick with throughout the session, or try a new one each time.

Free Time (Chofesh): Take a break from the day and enjoy some free time. This is the perfect opportunity to hang out with friends under the Perlman tree and play guitar, visit canteen, or take a dip in the pool. Relax and have fun!

Snack and Shema: Spend the last hours of the day learning popular Israeli dances with your friends—the perfect way to end the day before everyone heads off to bed!
