Remember the Way Camp Used to Be?
By Scott Snyder, Program Director
When you discovered your new best friend
lived right around the comer?
When your group built a secret campsite and you
had a secret password to get in?
When your counselor hugged you and said your
art project was great?
When you hit your first softball or sank
your first basket?
When your group collected the most firewood
for an overnight and won a prize?
When you learned to make “smores” on your
very first overnight?
When the magician taught you how to make balloon
animals during a late night program?
When your heart skipped a beat as you and the
rest of your group performed a Shabbat song?
When your birthday was during camp and the whole
camp sang happy birthday to you?
When you went hiking in the woods and you
saw animal tracks?
When the captain of your tesun said “don’t
worry, we’U win the next one?”
When you finally learned how to swim the
width of the swimming pool?
When you chose your favorite activity for
Camper Selection Period?
When you played soccer, tennis, basketbaU
and starred in your group’s Shabbat play?
When you tearfully hugged your counselor and
said, “I love you, see you next year?”
Whether it is Camps Katan, Maccabee, Sjjorts, Creative,
Computer, Teen Travel or the LIT program, you can make it
happen for your child this summer at the JCC where summer
is fun and kids can be kids. There are still spaces available tor
these exciting camp programs. For more information, contact
Scott Snyder, Program Director; Jessica Kranz, Director of
Children’s Services; or Cheryl Jankowitz, Director of Teen

saucers and he wishes with
crossed fingers, that he could
be going too. He can almost
