Achva Programs

Achva West is a truly fabulous program for boys and girls finishing the 9th grade that takes advantage of the great sites and attractions all over the Western United States.

From exciting theme parks to majestic mountains and from San Diego to Yellowstone National Park, this tour does so much you will not believe it. What's so amazing about Achva West? With Shabbat to relax and refresh, every day features something new to see and fun to do. Achva West is a great place to meet new people from different places and make friendships that last a lifetime.

Three meals a day are provided by our catering staff or local Kosher restaurants throughout your trip, and lodging is provided at hotels and an occasional motel along the way. Starting in Denver, CO, travel is aboard air-conditioned full size coach buses equipped with bathrooms and electrical outlets. You will finish up over 5 weeks later in glamorous Los Angeles, CA.

The tour also includes topical Torah learning sessions and a lively Shabbat at the end of each exciting week. The tour is supervised by our senior staff, talented counselors, catering and technical staff as well as a rabbinic advisor who will all work incredibly hard to give you the best summer possible.
