Acting Ancestors: Bringing our Family History and Jewish History to Life

“Acting Ancestors” combines theater and storytelling to explore Jewish history, and increase counselors’ and campers’ connection with their ancestry and Jewish identity. Acting Ancestors is an immersive theatrical program where an actor presents stories from Jewish Historical characters. Campers and counselors then get to create a character based on an ancestor or historical figure, and share their story as a performance. This transformative experience helps participants think about where they came from, and who they want to become.

It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to see our campers think outside of the box and really engage on a topic we don’t usually tackle at camp.
