Meet the Field:
What’s your role?
This will be my first summer as the Assistant Director of Camper and Staff Life at Beber Camp!
Where did you get your start?
If you weren’t a camp professional, you’d be…
A professional dancer on Dancing With the Stars. Not that my talent comes anywhere close but that totally seems like the dreamiest job!
What is your favorite camp meal is?
The greasier the better…
Who is the last camp person you spoke to?
My BFF Sarah. We met at camp when we were 9 and have been best friends ever since!
What was the best superlative you ever received?
When I was on staff at OSRUI in 2006, I received a superlative that said I was bound to be the next Assistant Director of a camp! I must’ve had some pretty smart friends :). I cannot wait to spend my first summer as the Assistant Director of Beber Camp.
What’s a MUST on your camp playlist?
Anything 90’s or early 2000’s pop… brings me back to my camper days
What is your favorite hobby?
I’m picking 2: Dance and yoga
What are your words to live by?
I love Gandhi’s quote to “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I find it so empowering and broadly applicable.
The camp activity that makes you wish you were a camper
Not technically an activity but the Israel trip! What I would give to be a teenager again to go on that trip…
Tell us what Jewish camp is to you, in 6 words.
A space to grow into yourself.
