Our Staff-In-Training (SITs) bring a special quality to EKC. As former EKC campers, they continue traditions with younger campers.
SITs travel to Israel for 21 days of their seven-week commitment. The trip is planned in conjunction with the Jewish Community Center Association in New York and Israel along with Pittsburgh’s Partnership 2Gether sister city and region of Karmiel/Misgav. The SITs participate in tikkun olam projects and three Shabbat weekends, including one in the homes of their Israeli counterparts. They also visit the Kotel and Yad Vashem, go on archeological digs and climb Masada, plus much more.
The group travels in a luxury tour bus and lodges at 3-star hotels.
Returning to camp renewed and excited to share their experiences, SITs participate in 3 weeks of program planning and supervision of campers as they complete their training.
