B’nai B’rith Perlman Camp
Lake Como, PA
Perlman Camp is better than ever with renovations to all the major structures and expanded living spaces. There's lots of green grass and outdoor space for activities, sports, programs, and time to relax around the iconic Perlman tree. Participants stay in cabins of 25 to 30 teens, divided into four to six rooms, which are staffed by our dedicated college counselors (madrichim). The whole camp is walkable in about 15 minutes.

Is ILTC for you?
ILTC is a great program for Alephs and BBGs in the 10th or 11th grade who are current or aspiring regional leaders, have attended regional leadership conventions or CLTC (though not required), or have an interest in leading, within or outside of BBYO!
How many teens attend ILTC?
ILTC welcomes around 250 Alephs and B’nai B’rith Girls each summer. Participants come from every region and countries from across the Order.
Who staffs ILTC?
BBYO programming professionals and advisors serve as the site director, program director, leadership director, and leadership staff at ILTC. We’re also joined by Jewish educators, song leaders, Israeli counselors (sh'lichim), expert specialists, college-age counselors (madrichim), and an office manager.
What is the ILTC curriculum about?
ILTC's primary focus is on leadership at the council, regional, and International level. Teens focus on developing a wide range of leadership skills including effective team collaboration, communication strategies, and relationship building, as well as learning how to shape a worldwide movement. Leadership skills are taught in a classroom environment and through hands-on, interactive activities in BluePrint groups. Jewish learning happens daily during Limmud sessions and, especially, at teen-led Shabbat, morning (Shacharit), and evening (Mincha) services.

ILTC + Kallah = Perlman Summer
A Perlman Summer combines International Leadership Training Conference (ILTC) and International Kallah for a total of six weeks at B’nai B’rith Perlman Camp for learning, leading and self-exploration. At both ILTC and Kallah, you’ll have all the fun of summer camp—Maccabiah (color war), time at the pool, lake, ropes course, archery, and Shabbat under the stars—but during a Perlman Summer, you’ll double that fun! The Perlman Summer also includes an all-day field trip, additional laundry service, and down time, all supervised by BBYO staff at no extra cost. Don’t miss out on the ultimate BBYO Summer Experience!
