CLTC


Chapter Leadership Training Conference (CLTC) is BBYO’s premier, hands-on leadership experience for current 9th and 10th grade members. At CLTC, you’ll participate in a close-knit group of your peers, and together you’ll develop your leadership capabilities and build a network of lifelong friends, as you explore connections to your Jewish heritage and the world around you. Best of all, CLTC takes place in an outdoor camp setting where you’ll enjoy swimming, sports, music, chofesh (free time), and a celebration of Shabbat under the stars.  Each session also features guest speakers, an offsite field trip, and some special surprises!

With eight sessions to choose from at two idyllic locations—Montréal, Canada and Mukwonago, Wisconsin— we offer lots of flexibility for you to build a CLTC leadership experience into your summer plans. 

One Program, Eight Sessions, Two Awesome Locations:

B’nai B’rith Beber Camp
Mukwonago, Wisconsin
CLTC 1, 3, 5, 7 & 8

Beber Camp, located right outside Milwaukee, offers the classic summer camp experience—lots of green, wide-open spaces and rooms of four to six bunk beds, each with a private bathroom. It typically takes under five minutes to get from one end of camp to the other.

CLTC 1: June 4–16, 2019
CLTC 3: June 18–30, 2019
CLTC 5: July 2–14, 2019

Camp B’nai Brith of Montréal, Montréal, Canada
CLTC 2, 4 & 6

Camp B’nai Brith of Montréal is located outside the city of Montréal and offers the classic camp experience. Situated on a beautiful lakeside, most of CLTC will be hosted in a large building which is connected to the housing. Rooms have two to three beds each, with a private bathroom. This facility is fully kosher. Participants coming from outside of Canada will need a passport to travel to CLTC Montréal.

Is CLTC for you?
CLTC is a great program for Alephs and BBGs currently in 9th or 10th grade who are current or aspiring chapter leaders, have attended or are interested in attending regional leadership conventions, or who haven't yet been to a BBYO international program!

How many teens attend CLTC?
Each session welcomes around 100 participants. The smaller group size offers members the chance to create a community in which each member has the chance to grow and shine.

Who staffs CLTC?
BBYO programming professionals and advisors serve as the site director, leadership director, and leadership staff at CLTC. We’re also joined by a Jewish educator, song leader, Israeli counselors (or sh'lichim), an office manager, and college-age counselors (or madrichim).

What is the CLTC curriculum about?
The emphasis at CLTC is on building leadership skills applicable across participants’ AZA, BBG, or BBYO chapters, high school classrooms, and home communities. Jewish values and community service also are central to the CLTC experience. Members plan and lead daily morning (Shacharit) services as well as Shabbat services.

Is the food at CLTC kosher?

  • Beber Camp: This a Kosher facility that serves only foods which have been produced under rabbinical supervision.

  • Camp B’nai Brith of Montréal: This facility has two fully Glatt Kosher kitchens (one dairy, one meat).


What do I do about medication?

  • Beber Camp: Participants must register in advance with CampMeds, a service that provides pre-packaged, pre-dosaged medication to participants who require it. There is a $250 fee for those who do not register and arrive at camp with their medications. The exceptions to this are inhalers, birth control, epi-pens, nasal sprays, injectable medications, prescription ointments, and refrigerated medication.

  • Camp B’nai Brith of Montréal: Teens may arrive with their medications in their original packaging and labeled with their names. They are to be turned over to the camp nurse at registration. The exceptions to this are inhalers, birth control, epi-pens, and acne medication.


How do I get to CLTC?
Teens can either be dropped off directly at camp by a parent or guardian, or they can fly into the local airport, where they'll be met by BBYO staff and taken to their program by bus.

  • Beber Camp: The local airport is General Mitchell International Airport, Milwaukee, WI (MKE).

    • Arrival: Teens flying in must book flights that arrive by 3 PM on the first day of their session. Teens being dropped off should arrive at camp between 4 and 4:30 PM. 

    • Departure: All flights should be booked to depart after 12 PM on the last day of the session. Teens being picked up should have their parent or guardian arrive by 9 AM.

  • Camp B’nai Brith of Montréal: The local airport is Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL).

    • Arrival: Teens flying in must book flights that arrive by 2 PM on the first day of their session. Teens being dropped off should arrive at camp between 4 and 4:30 PM.
