For the younger crowd, it’s a summer time tradition, but this year, adults get to partake in the fun.

Tucson Jewish Community Center is hosting Around the World: Adult Summer Camp Monday, June 12 – Friday, June 16.

Travel the world in just one week and without ever leaving the Tucson. Each day of the camp you’ll be able to channel your inner adventurer, and introduce yourself to the languages, cooking classes, and cultures of China, France, Italy, Mexico, and Israel.

Whether you’d like to set up camp and explore one country, or all discover all five during the week, it’s completely up to you.

One day of the Adult Summer Camp is $60 per person or $50 for Tucson Jewish Community Center members.

If you want to explore each country and hit the mess hall all week long, the weekly rate is $275 per person or $225 for members.
