Hand in Hand is an inclusion program that integrates youth of all abilities in an after school social program. Our program provides young adults with special needs an opportunity to socialize with mainstream peers, learn new skills, and have fun. One of the biggest challenges for children with special needs is to find appropriate programs that provide the support they need as well as opportunities to expand their world in a safe and fun environment, and our “buddy program” addresses those needs. We meet regularly every Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and at other times for special field trips. read less

Each trip follows a different itinerary and offers unique outdoor activities, like backpacking, rock climbing, sea kayaking and river rafting, which are designed to challenge, empower and inspire. Teens choose the music, set the menu, and work together – it’s like a road trip with a dozen friends into the great outdoors. Tawonga’s four-part mission of fostering positive self-image and self-esteem, creating cooperative community, encouraging a deep appreciation of nature and exploring Jewish identity and spirituality come to life on this unique off-site experience. - See more at: http://tawonga.org/programs/summer/teen-travel-adventure-quests/#sthash.kv4fzvl7.dpuf read less

If your child is accompanied by a 1:1 aid in school or in the community OR is not toileted or independently able to use the bathroom, we do require that they attend class with an aid. Please note that even if your child does not require a 1:1 in a small-contained school environment, he/she may need more support in this very active, inclusive, social environment. The Miracle Project and The Wallis staff reserves the right to request professional support if we feel your child requires the support needed to be able to be successful in class. Although the class will include volunteers to act as peer role models and co-actors, the volunteers are NOT professionals, and may not be expected to take the place of a paid professional interventionist. And finally, if after we make reasonable attempts to engage your child it is determined that they are unable to remain for the duration of the program on any or all days, we will contact you to pick them up.

We see every activity we offer as a "gateway," starting with activities children already enjoy, showing them how they might be Jewish, or serve as gateways to Jewish connections. Our activities include Israeli dance, Krav Maga, mountain biking, archery, cooking, hiking, gardening, basketball, horseback riding, swimming, arts and crafts, music, rock wall/adventure course and producing programs at our very own radio station!

The Jewish Federation’s Tour de Summer Camps is a community cycling and hiking event that will raise significant funds to send more of our kids to Jewish summer camp, helping them build a lifelong connection to Jewish identity and values. Cyclists and adventurers of all kinds (from beginner to expert level) will take on the challenge of a 18-mile, 36-mile, 62-mile (Metric Century), or 100-mile (Century) ride and ask friends, family, and coworkers to sponsor them in their fundraising efforts! Anyone can participate – young and old – but you must be 16 years or older to ride. If you are under 16, will be out of town or don’t ride a bike consider being a Virtual Rider or participating in the 1, 3 or 6 mile hike. The goal of Tour de Summer Camps is to provide means for every child who wants to attend Jewish summer camp to do so. All proceeds from the ride will support summer camp scholarships to give more kids that lifelong connection to Judaism that only Jewish summer camp can provide, which will in turn help us ensure the Jewish future—one of The Jewish Federation’s top priorities.
