Event Details

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 a number of sessions to choose from at our new idyllic location, Commonpoint in the Poconos, we offer lots of flexibility for you to build a CLTC leadership experience into your summer plans.

Cost: $2,250.00 (due by 04/05/2022)
Deposit Amount: $250.00

Q&A

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, an office manager, and college-age counselors (or madrichim).

Where is CLTC located?
CLTC 2022 will take place at the Commonpoint Retreat Center, which is owned by the Commonpoint JCC, a partner of UJA Federation of NY. Situated in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains, the sprawling grounds and lush scenery will be the perfect place for our CLTC community to learn, have fun, and thrive together this summer.

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?
All food served at the Commonpoint Retreat Center is kosher-style and all meat is certified kosher.

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 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.

  • The local airport for CLTC is Newark Liberty International Airport

  • Additional travel information will become available after registration opens!

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.
