As the end of June approaches, CAMERA wraps up another successful Student Leadership and Advocacy Training trip to Israel! This year marks the 7th year that CAMERA has taken approximately 25 college students on a 10-day, completely subsidized geopolitical tour of Israel. The experience focuses on exploring media portrayal of Israel, historical truths, and student leadership development. Read more about CAMERA’s Israel trip on the CAMERA on Campus main site!
CAMERA’s students have consistently praised the Israel trip as one of the most influential and successful Israel-related experiences they have had, and this year has been no different. As the 2013 CAMERA Israel journey winds down, one participant- Rena Nasar, CUNY Baruch CCAP student and YOFI founder- had this to say:
“Going to Israel with CAMERA has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life, with brilliant speakers, insightful activities, and great friends. This trip revitalized me to continue my work in Israel advocacy because it reminded me why we do what we do on our campuses. It reminded me of the amazing land and people that we advocate for every day.”
Rena is just one of the many exceptional students we at CAMERA are privileged enough to work with every year. We thank Rena for her kind words, and reply that we will always LOVE our students!
