Dear Parents & Friends,
We are on the cusp of welcoming parents, grandparents, siblings and alumni back home for the first time in three years. It’s no-doubt exciting for our campers and staff alike and we are thankful to Hashem that we find ourselves in a position to host an in-person Visiting Day. There were many factors that drove this decision — but giving our guests a chance to see the camp facility, meet camp staff, and enjoy camp activities were all secondary to the core motivation to host, which is the fifth reason I am so passionate about camping: Family.
Summer camp strengthens family — both inside and out. Leaving home often makes our camper’s hearts grow fonder and giving children an experience to connect with parents through the unique context of Visiting Day is hard to match. I remember that special Visiting-Day-feeling as a child. We also view the relationship with our camp parents as extended family — partnering together in educating and raising our children. Finally, we are so blessed to form our own ‘summer family’ here at camp and giving parents the opportunity to taste this sense of achdut and camaraderie is invaluable.
