“I was going to camp up until the year I was engaged. The minute I started working at Solomon Schechter and had my summers free again, it was the best opportunity to get involved at camp. I finish my job and a few days later I’m at the YCC busses, ready to go run the infirmary for the summer.
I love being surrounded by children and knowing I’m making a difference. I also love being in the fresh air; it clears away the cobwebs of the year. Even though it’s physically exhausting, I feel refreshed. And there’s the Judaic component, too – I love seeing the kids walking off to services. It’s a nice environment. It kind of feels like a year squished into two months!”
