Teva Tours travel camp, headed by Mrs. Chayale Gourarie, where girls take an exhilarating 15-day trip on the US West Coast, is gearing up for their 14th summer session.
Mrs. Chayale Gourarie’s exciting traveling Teva Tours for high school girls is gearing up for their 14th summer of adventure. This year, Teva, which is geared for girls who are currently finishing up 9th and 10th grade, will embark on a 15-day invigorating trip beginning in Nevada, traveling, camping and hiking through Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons National Park, Yellowstone and more. The trip will wrap up in the beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah.
When Mrs. Gourarie established her tour of America’s National Parks in 5757 (1997), her focus was on experiencing Hashem’s breathtaking wonders through a chassidishe lens. That hasn’t changed! Teva’s motto is ‘Transforming Your Nature Through Nature.’ “So much can be learned from nature that we can apply to our own personal growth,” explains Mrs. Gourarie.
“I frequently hear that people feel that Teva changed their life,” she says, “I’m not surprised, it’s changed mine, too. How can it not? What can be more inspiring than learning and growing while in the splendor of Hashem’s creations? Our activities are done in the spirit of ‘S’u marom eineichem u’reu mi boro eileh!’ Lift your eyes heavenward and see Who created these. Our goal is to provide an unforgettable experience that combines the adventure of true camping with a deep appreciation for the majesty of Hashems world, and a deeper understanding of oneself.”
Teva’s daily shiurim include Chitas, Tanya b’al peh and Inyonei Geulo Umoshiach. New friendships blossom around the camp fire farbrengens under starry skies. One of the highlights along the way is meeting and farbrenging with the Rebbe’s shluchim, who always welcome and inspire us.
Teva is a roving camp, as always they’ll be traveling comfortably, stopping to camp in tents and hike in breathtaking national parks along the way. They’ve had lots of practice planning and packing for these trips and they serve tasty, nutritious, hearty meals – even in the boondocks! Although an oxymoro, Teva is truly a camping RETREAT! The campers are pampered, and cared for around the clock. In addition to adult supervision, their experienced counselors are chassidishe girls who are ready to have a blast!
Mrs. Gourarie is planning an intimate group, and space is VERY limited. Camp dates are from Wednesday, Yud Bais Av through Thursday, Chof Zayin Av (July 21 – August 5).
