For more than 55 years USY Summer Experience has provided life changing summer travel opportunities for Jewish teens. Our trip destinations include North America, Israel, Europe, and beyond, opening participants eyes to new places, new experiences, and different cultures all over the globe. Now it’s your turn, see where it takes you!
USY Summer Experience brings together Jewish teens from across North America who forge incredible bonds that last a lifetime through living and traveling together.
USY provides an exciting, fun way for teens to explore and develop their Jewish identities. On USY summer programs teens experience the beauty of Shabbat, learn about the power of Tzedakah, and gain inspiration through creative prayer and engaging, interactive learning opportunities.
I learned about our Jewish past, by experiencing Jewish life in Prague, Berlin, and Poland, before and after the Holocaust, experienced our Jewish present, by witnessing and participating in Jewish life in every corner of Israel, and connected to our Jewish future by reaffirming my Jewish faith and creating a lasting connection to Israel.
[USY on Wheels] was without a doubt the best summer of his life. How many teenagers get to daven in three national parks with other teenagers, willingly? Since he got back he tells me there isn’t a day that he doesn’t think about the trip and the friends who he made. Wheels may be over, but he has the memories of a trip most kids can only dream about.
When we speak to our daughter we can hear the glow in her voice as she describes not only the excitement of physically being at the historic sites, but the emotional connection she is feeling with her new friends…We feel so grateful to have been able to give this opportunity to our daughter, as she will carry these memories with her always.
