Israel Trekking and Service

This course combines service and trekking through Israel and Palestine. You will spend time in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Nazareth and then have the opportunity to trek for four days from Nazareth to the Mount of the Beatitudes along the Jesus Trail­­­™. The Jesus Trail™ is a moderate trail on which you will carry only a daypack, as your gear is transferred to each night’s accommodations.

There are options for camping or staying in a bed and breakfast or hostel along the trail, making this a great course for families or folks who could not participate in a “typical” Summit course.

Course Elements

  • Visits to cultural and historical sites
  • Biblical discussions
  • The Jesus Trail™
  • Cross-cultural service
  • Exploration of modern-day issues in the Holy Land
