Growing up at Jewish summer camp

Growing up at Jewish summer camp

Summer time. No classrooms. No homework. No bells. Just the blissful summer sunshine beating down.

Jewish summer camp counselors’ hot, long days are spent enriching the lives of campers through Jewish-rooted programs that will make a lasting mark.

Rocky Altman, a 13-year attendee of Shwayder Camp, and in her fourth year as a staff member, started attending because her older sister went to camp. The friendships she formed at age seven have “stuck like glue” as she is now co-counselor with a friend she made as a first-year camper.

“This summer, I am in charge of the youngest campers. When I look at mine and their friendships, I see similarities. When they say good-bye to each other, they talk about being counselors together,” says Altman. The kids arrive as individuals but “leave together as a unit.”
