“Sixty-six organized student tours will leave for Israel this year, marking a three-fold increase over last year’s student tours,” Joseph Ilan, director of the Israel Government Tourist Office, reported today. “In addition, the first teen-age camp for Americans will open in Israel this summer.”

The camp in Israel for American boys and girls of 14 to 17 years of age, Camp Kait, is located near the modern Ramat Aviv Hotel on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. The hotel can accommodate the parents, giving them freedom to travel and the opportunity to be near their children, Under the supervision of eminent American and Israel educators and of the Education Department of the Municipality of Tel Aviv, the camp offers the customary variety of sport and camping activities plus an educational tour of the country.
