A Little About Prestige Prep

Under the leadership of Phil Cohen, former Director of Year-Round Programs for Young Judaea, Prestige Prep have helped thousands of students and families build towards a brighter future. Prestige Prep sets out to “Challenge students to push themselves, while building their confidence and sense of self.” This perfectly aligns with our TY goals. By combining the academic experience of Prestige Prep with classic Tel Yehudah, teens will come home with a summer's worth of memories, friends, and academic preparedness entering the new school year!"

Get the Most Out of Your Summer

As important as it is to improve academically, 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.
