Join our newest program led by Nick Greene, who just got back from the Appalachian Trail! With a focus on wilderness and outdoor education through a Judaic lens, this program is for the adventurous teen looking to explore the great outdoors. The Bachutz program incorporates traditions like properly building a fire, seeking water and shelter, learning conservation and protecting our environment. Participants will take day trips to local National Parks and end the year culminating in an overnight experience.
