Our Mador program is a 9-week leadership training program for rising college freshman. Mador offers a two-part comprehensive training structure. Our ‘Madorniks’ are active both “in the field” as counselors in the bunks of our youngest campers, as well as “in the classroom” with special sessions led by experts in a variety of fields, including education, rabbinic’s, psychology, and child development.

The Mador application process includes an application, references, and an interview. Applicants should be active in their Jewish communities (Hebrew High schools, Jewish youth groups, teaching, etc.).

~Stay tuned for application and more details~
