A Summer Experience for Diaspora
Palestinian Youth and Friends (Age 14-17)
Become part of a trip to the homeland of Palestinian culture, with an opportunity to make lasting friends and connections into the future.
Adventure and Exploration
What would a summer camp be without the opportunity to explore? Go Palestine will incorporate a significant number of trips to the many wonderful historic and cultural sites in the area. Of course it is summer and we play as well. There are shared activities at the home base Ramallah Friends School, and on trips to places, like swimming in the Mediterranean.
Whether it be helping to build a playground at a refugee camp or replanting Olive trees, you'll have an opportunity to confront the realities of life in the West Bank and witness steps that are being taken to solve the issues of Peace and Justice through community building and reconciliation.
A Typical Day
Your daily schedule will give you an opportunity to experience the many different aspects of Palestinian culture. Expanding beyond the visits to cities such as Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus, Haifa, Jerusalem, and Taybeh, among others, you'll also have the chance join your host family in their day-to-day life.
