Marissa & Rey

Habonim Dror Camp Moshava 

When at camp did you meet?

We met at camp Moshava in 2003, although we didn’t become friends until 2005. We were both in Amelim, though Rey is a year older. We clicked because we both liked musicals, sci-fi, and Harry Potter.

What happened between you when camp ended that summer?

At some point we started keeping in contact over Yahoo messenger. We both came out to each other in our early teens. We were both interested in each other for years, but didn’t start dating until 2010.

Did you have anything camp-themed at your wedding?

We did do one of the dances we learned at camp, and a few camp friends attended.

Do you find that your time at camp has influenced your marriage?

We have a lot of shared childhood memories of course, and lots of songs we both know.
