CTeen was founded in 2008 as a small network with a few chapters of Jewish teens in select locations. Its goal was to provide them with the opportunity to meet, laugh, and learn with other Jewish peers. Today CTeen has expanded to become the fastest growing Jewish teen network in the world, with over 600 chapters worldwide. CTeen offers many programs throughout the year, including social events, regional trips, and Shabbatons.
CTeen summer trips offer teens a unique opportunity to meet and connect with Jewish teens from all over the world for an extended period of time. Self-discovery, adventure, bonding with peers, and appreciating group dynamics are essential during the adolescent years when children are transformed into adults. CTeen Summer is proud to offer a fun and wholesome environment for teens to grow as people, as well as proud Jews. Each summer the group of teens become a family and long lasting friendships are built. CTeen summer trips are all committed to one goal: to give your teen an unforgettable Jewish experience.
Our staff members are hand-picked for their experience, expertise, good social skills, warmth, and a love and knack for teens. Drawing on their own camp experience, our staff will work to develop skills, confidence, and a responsible spirit within each teen. Our low camper-to-staff ratio ensures that each child will have the highest quality supervision along with caring and attentive guidance.
At CTeen, we take pride in our motto: Judaism with a smile. Our fun and hands-on approach leaves our campers imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage and a love for the Land of Israel.
CTeen Summer is where treasured memories take place and lifetime friendships begin.
