Host families needed for Israeli Scouts from the Tzofim Friendship Caravan. The Scouts will be in Dallas from June 28-July 6.
Hosting is a wonderful opportunity for your children to learn about Israel, build long-lasting relationships and have friends to visit when they travel to Israel for their teen tour!Hosts still needed for one girl and two boys.
Host family must be Jewish
Must have at least one child in the 10 – 18 year old range
At least one parent must be at home during the stay (This simply means that you can’t leave a scout with an 18-year-old while mom and dad are traveling to Rome or some other fabulous place!)
We will match Scouts with families of similar dietary observance
The Caravan has activities during the weekdays, you will need to provide transportation to a drop off point in North Dallas in the mornings (before 8 am) and pick them back up in the late afternoon/evening. For those that live in Frisco or further North, we have an additional drop off location near Parker Rd and the Dallas North Tollway.
There are a few evening activities which host families will be invited to join.
Spend time with your Scout as a family. They are here to learn about America and build relationships with you as well.
There is an annual host family orientation within a month of the Caravan’s arrival where will we be able to share which Scout you’ve been matched with.
If you can host, please contact Theresa Hurt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
