Once stepping into a home, the first action one takes is to turn on the lights. Similarly, hiring a staff who can serve as role models and illuminate and inspire our campers to live a life dedicated to Jewish values is the very first step we take in ensuring a successful summer.
We strongly believe that a camp is only as good as the staff on the frontlines. It’s hard to think of another relationship in a child’s life that is so impactful than the camper / staff member relationship. Camp staff serve as guiding lights – mentors and role models – by helping campers grow in their yiddishkeit, navigate challenges, and embrace new experiences. It is the radiating warmth, passion, expertise, and genuine care of our staff that makes a child’s summer camp experience a successful one.
Since the founding of our camp 60 years ago, the words “תורה אור” sits at the center of the Camp Morasha logo. The camp’s founders knew very well that the essence of camp will be the Torah-living inspiring role models that our campers interact with on a daily basis. As we enter Shabbat Chazon and Tisha B’av, may we all be inspired to do good deeds so that next year, BEH, we are celebrating our 61st season in Yerushalayim.
