Living in Palestine
While in Palestine, Summer Encounter participants will live with a Palestinian host family and will have the opportunity to learn from their day-to-day lives and experiences. Holy Land Trust has a wide range of contacts among Palestinian families living in Bethlehem, Beit Sahour and Beit Jala. Additionally, we have contacts with families in three refugee camps in the Bethlehem area: Aida, Dehaisheh and Azza.
Host families provide all of their guests with a place to sleep, breakfast, dinner and, when possible or appropriate, access to laundry services (normally a washer and dryer). Anyone who has special needs or request in relation to their home-stays should contact us about it least two months before their departure date.
