Andrew Fishman, Director of Camp Davis and Children’s Services
We know that so many of you are looking forward to Camp Davis this summer. And we are days away from the best summer ever. Camp begins on June 6, and we have a summer packed with fun and amazing upgrades to our already incredible camp experience. There will be a parent orientation on June 1 at 5 pm for anyone who is interested in attending and learning more about their camper’s experience at Camp.
In our extensive planning, the focus has been on enhancing quality, increasing communication, and making all the needed plans for the camp to run smoothly. We have revamped specialty camps by adding outside professionals in certain areas to run them and rebranded Brain Builders to STEM Camp. New positions have been created and staffed to help facilitate better communications. More unit heads have been added and the addition of a Program Director and Parent Engagement Specialist will round out our incredible leadership team. A more efficient pickup and drop-off system in a new location is sure to streamline these processes, and we’ve added a new special event almost every week to bring our campers more fun!
Assistant Director Max O'Dell and I are excited to share our vision for Camp Davis with our beloved families. First and foremost, we want to present our new logo, shown above, that will reflect the new era of Camp Davis. We also want to introduce our Leadership team.
Inclusion Director Abby "AP" Pierron is returning and excited to help make camp accessible to all our campers. Three other staff members are returning to camp but joining the leadership team for the first time: Sami Weinberg, Jordan Reeves, and Dylan Schuman. They are joined by three leaders coming to Camp Davis for the first time: Abigail Hardage, Imani Thomas, and Shannon Dilks. The whole leadership team is ready for an amazing summer leading staff to success, helping campers grow, and assisting our camp families with all needs.
Our Shlicha from Israel, Noa is very excited to join the camp and already has some amazing plans to engage campers in the Israeli experience. We can’t wait for you to experience all that she has to offer.
There are still a few openings if you’re interested. Our Specialty Camps are very popular, but very limited spots are available in most of the camps. There is no guarantee that spots will be available later in the summer so sign up now if you are on the fence. The last week of camp is almost totally full (yay Maccabi games!) but there are still a few spaces for almost all ages for other weeks.
