Be prepared: FIRST AID AND RESCUE TRAINING INTENSIVE@TY
In partnership with the American Red Cross, Hatzalah: Lifeguard, First Aid and Rescue Training is a new two-week intensive teaching teens life-saving skills.
Dates: July 24-August 7, 2018
For: Current 8th-11th Graders
TY Partners with the American Red Cross
This summer, TY is partnering with the American Red Cross to provide teens the opportunity to earn certifications in Wilderness First Aid (WFA) and Lifeguarding. Experts will guide campers through the necessary steps to master and implement life-saving skills.
Preparing Teens for Real-World Scenarios
TY’s unique atmosphere promotes teamwork and collaboration in every aspect. Campers will cooperate in assessing emergency situations–such as injuries and sudden illness–and work together to determine how to respond. Teens will gain invaluable experience for potential real-world scenarios.
Life-Saving Skills Meet Life-Fulfilling Activities
As important as it is to acquire these skills, there is always room for fun, friendships, and exploration. Tel Yehudah provides a one-of-a-kind Jewish environment, where teens interact with others from Jewish communities in the U.S., Israel and around the world. The “best of camp” at TY includes the opportunity to partake in sports, arts and Israel education programs. Each week culminates in Shabbat, amidst the natural, serene setting of Tel Yehudah and is followed by a wild Israeli dance party.
Teens participating in the two-week Hatzalah Training Intensive will:
- Meet the necessary requirements to complete Red Cross Lifeguard certification.
- Earn a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) certificate.
- Learn life-saving skills and how to provide physical assistance in extreme situations.
- Improve self-confidence.
- Develop ability to work in cooperation with others.
- Realize increased physical fitness levels.

Participants in Hatzalah spend 4-5 hours a day engaged in developing their lifeguarding, first aid and rescue skills with other participants and staff.
