The summer months can be very challenging, given that many boys have substantial free time available to them. In particular, students that have successfully attended school in Israel during the school year often return and end up regressing over the course of the summer. To combat this problem, Project Build Summer Extreme was created to allow the boys to spend their summers in a structured environment.
Each day starts with prayer services, followed by two hours of Jewish learning. Groups of approximately five boys are then dispatched, together with a foreman, to different construction sites. Sample jobs include building decks, demolition work, painting and a variety of other building tasks. Each night, members of the community host the group for a barbeque followed by swimming or other recreational activities.
