Since 2008 Zalman Notik has run an extreme travel camp for Jewish teenagers. He has run trips throughout the west coast, southern United States, and Israel. This year we are going bigger. It's time to TAKE OVER Alaska.


Our Mission

Zalman Notik is the founder of Jewish Youth Adventure, a branch of Gan Israel, that ensures Jewish teens are taught proper values and learn about their heritage. Zalman has experience with running travel camps for over 10 years. The campers who attended the trips came from all different types of backgrounds: Some troubled homes, no religious backgrounds, low income homes, or some troubled themselves. So far over 15 teens from these previous trips have landed in Yeshivas. Almost all of them came to these trips without any Jewish background.
