Lev Tmimim Summer Leadership ProgramA summer of intense growth, learning, personal development and FUN!
ט׳ תמוז – ח׳ אב ה׳תש׳׳פ
July 1 – July 29, 2020
The Lev Tmimim Summer Leadership Program is a standalone program open to the greater community (not necessarily geared only to our Mesivta Bochurim).
The goal of the program is exactly as stated above, to provide a summer of intense growth, learning, personal development and fun.
The program focuses heavily on meaningful activities and programming that facilitate that goal. Throughout the summer, and in each activity, your son is challenged, guided, supported, and encouraged to go out of his comfort zone, get in touch with himself, connect with his peers, and discover his full potential.
The program includes many opportunities to develop creativity and discover potential talents and interests that your son may not even be aware that he has.
This program is not meant to be a relaxing vacation. Although it will be fun, exciting, and enjoyable, there will be real expectations and demands placed upon the participants. These will be intertwined with every aspect of the daily schedule such as
- an emphasis on real עבודה and connection in Davening
- internalizing concepts learned in Chassidus
- taking on S.M.A.R.T. goals and Hachlotos Tovos
- developing leadership, taking initiative, and interpersonal skills during play and sports
- confidence building through public speaking and healthy risk taking
- team building activities
Due to the Covid-19 situation, specific trips and off campus activities are still tentative, however, within the guidelines and available open facilities, some of the items on the agenda are
- Hiking – including some very challenging courses, and water hiking
- Amusement parks/Amusement centers
- Shooting range
- Outdoor camping/survival overnight
- Shchita/ Kosher Butchering facility
- River Tubing
Daily/Weekly activities include:
- Learning- Chassidus, Halacha, Gemara/Mishna
- Guitar lessons
- Computer coding
- First aid and CPR
- Mandatory daily physical fitness workout
- Organizational skills and time management
- Health and Nutrition
Note: we are keeping the program relatively small, up to 10-15 boys. As such, despite having much physical and outdoor activity, if your son is looking for a summer program with heavy emphasis and traditional sports games (baseball, football, etc.) then this program is probably not for him. We will have sports and a lot of outdoor activities, but sports games, per se, is not the emphasis.
The program is being run by Rabbi Hami, Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta Lev Tmimim, together with two unmarried staff counselors.
