German-Israeli Youth Summer Camp

This 15-day summer camp is aimed at young people from the age of 16 who are interested in learning and involving themselves about the history and present in Israel and Germany. How do we view the relationships between the two countries? What connects us and what makes us different? We invite you to a special search for traces in Berlin and Jerusalem.

Together with ten young Germans and ten young Israelis , we will spend time with each other over two weeks creating friendships, getting to know beautiful cities and going on exciting trips. First of all we will get to know Berlin (15.07.-22.07.2019) and have the chance to deal with the facets of history and the German-Israeli relationship. In addition, you will talk to representatives of today’s German-Israeli initiatives and discuss how they experience society in Israel and Germany!

The encounter between young Germans and Israelis is a particularly special one and along with this should come lots of room for individual family stories and discussions with each other.

After a week you will travel to Jerusalem (22.07.-29.07.2019). Immerse yourself in the foundational history of Israel: Which hopes have been fulfilled? What wishes and feelings do the people of Israel today remember about the founding of the state 70 years ago? And what does music have to do with all this? At the end of our musical trip we want to party: It is your time to party in Jerusalem!

To retain all the exciting experiences and encounters, a visual documentation is planned whether you are on Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook, the decision lies with you.

Accompanying you will be four team leaders consisting of German and Israeli participants. All of these participants have are experienced with ARSP and will assist you in Jerusalem and Berlin through language, local and cultural knowledge.

We await your application!
