SHAI's Teen Leadership Program is a youth summer camp that was initiated during the summer of 2013 with two dozen participants. The program is designed for use by thirteen and fourteen year olds as a fun and educational summer program based in Great Neck NY.
Directed and organized by Rabbi Yamin Levy, this program operates from within Beth Hadassah synagogue’s summer camp. For six weeks during the summer months, the camp participants learn the values of community and charitable work while enjoying various fun and interesting activities. Each week the teens visit the Great Neck Senior Center and engage in activities with our seniors. Once a week they partake in recreational trips such as paint balling, rock climbing, trips to the beach, water parks and the like.
During the summer of 2015, due to overwhelming demand, SHAI doubled the size of the camp participants from 25 to 50 youngsters.
