International Leadership Training Conference (ILTC), the ideal program for Alephs and BBGs, empowers you to raise your voice and realize your potential through peer leadership. You’ll further develop your leadership abilities, learn how to shape a worldwide movement, and gain invaluable skills in effective team collaboration, communication strategies, and relationship building. These skills and more will help you succeed long after your AZA and BBG high school experience comes to an end. Through classic camp activities and unique bonding moments, you’ll build confidence, grow your personal networks with friends from around the world, and strengthen your Jewish pride.

 

 


“I don't really know how to put my ILTC experience into words, and I don't know how I can ever thank all of you so much for making my experience more amazing than I ever could have imagined. I will never forget it, and I will never forget all of you for being so amazing!” —Sydney A., Great Midwest Region

“Thank you for giving me one of the best experiences of my life at ILTC. Each one of you are very special to me and you have all changed my life and made me a better person. BBYO is my favorite place to be and you all make me feel like I'm a part of a giant family that supports me and it's amazing. Thank you for a life-changing summer!” —Ari N., Michigan Region

Is ILTC for you?
ILTC is a great program for Alephs and BBGs currently in 10th or 11th grade who are current or aspiring regional leaders, have attended regional leadership conventions or CLTC (though not required), or have an interest in leading, within or outside of BBYO!

How many teens attend ILTC?
ILTC welcomes around 200 Alephs and B’nai B’rith Girls each summer. Participants come from every region and countries from across the Order.

Who staffs ILTC?
BBYO programming professionals and advisors serve as the site director, program director, leadership director, and leadership staff at ILTC. We’re also joined by Jewish educators, song leaders, Israeli counselors (sh'lichim), expert specialists, college-age counselors (madrichim), and an office manager.

What is the ILTC curriculum about?      
ILTC's primary focus is on leadership at the council, regional, and International level. Teens focus on developing a wide range of leadership skills including effective team collaboration, communication strategies, and relationship building, as well as learning how to shape a worldwide movement. Leadership skills are taught in a classroom environment and through hands-on, interactive activities in BluePrint groups. Jewish learning happens daily during Limmud sessions and, especially, at teen-led Shabbat, morning (Shacharit), and evening (Mincha) services.

Is the food at ILTC kosher?
Perlman Camp utilizes certified kosher ingredients, and prepares in accordance with kosher practices. There is no ongoing rabbinical supervision in the kitchen.

What do I do about medication?
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.

How do I get to ILTC?
Teens can either be dropped off directly at camp by a parent or guardian, or they can fly into the local airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Newark, NJ (EWR), where they'll be met by BBYO staff and taken to their program by bus.

Do you offer travel insurance?
BBYO is glad to offer a travel insurance option for all our Summer Experiences through Travel Insured International. Families are highly encouraged to purchase travel insurance to protect their investment and plan for the unexpected. Please visit this page to see all the details on the policy and its terms.

What are the health and safety precautions for Summer 2022?
BBYO's health and safety guidelines are set by our Medical Team and Wellness Staff based on the most up-to-date information. All participants must have current inoculations based on BBYO's Immunization Policy, including being fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by the Pfizer, Moderna, Astra Zeneca, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine. All participants must also receive the COVID-19 booster if their second vaccine dose—or first dose of Johnson & Johnson—was received more than 180 days before the start of their BBYO Summer program. The booster must be received no later than 14 days before a participant’s arrival date to their program.

As health information is constantly evolving, additional information will be finalized in the coming months and updated on our website, as well as communicated in detail to our registered families.
