Dear Parents & Friends,
Imagine if the concept of overnight camp did not exist. Imagine a world where our children had no counselors to look up to, no camp friends to connect with, and no opportunity to unplug from their devices for any extended period of time. There’s no two ways about it — The immersive nature of overnight camp creates a most unique and transformative experience for our children. It is unparalleled.
I was often asked in my mid-to-late 20’s when I would get a ‘real job.’ When asked this, I of course understood the intention of the question. But it was the irony of the wording that I found most fascinating. Because, in my humble opinion, there is nothing more real than summer camp. This is where children have the distinctive opportunity to gain real independence, make real lifelong friendships, and build real skills. This is why we are so passionate about Jewish camping.
In line with this summer’s educational theme, “People of Passion,” I look forward to utilizing each weekly email to focus on a specific and unique element of summer camp of which I am passionate. Until then, I want to thank our camp parents for partnering with us in this journey. We truly believe that there’s never been a time when summer camp was more important than now — and we are thrilled to be back at it for our 59th season.
Director, Camp Morasha
