12 Days – High School Study Tour

Join us on an adventure-packed 12-day tour for high school students. The program is focused on improving creative learning skills at the same time as gleaning expertise from Israel’s innovative and cutting-edge start-up culture.

With this in mind, the itinerary is built in partnership with the Michael Method. This unique educational program encourages the students of today to surpass their traditional education systems to meet the expectations of the 21st Century economic and technological workforce. The tour can also be adapted to suit either Summer or Winter camps.

Built around the rich cultural heritage of Israel, participants will be introduced to once in a lifetime experiences in tourism, education, and innovation throughout the 12-day tour. Opportunities include hearing from expert speakers, peer cultural exchange, and visits to some of the businesses, universities and academic institutions which craft the ‘Start-Up Nation.’

Intertwined with creative learning skills, tours to destinations such as The Bahai Gardens and the immersive Bedouin experience make for a richly rounded tour that remains unforgettable, long after students arrive back on home soil.
