This year Camp Tshirt Day took place on 14th November and we were thrilled to see everyone’s pictures!
This summer we had some amazing comments from members of staff parents on how much they saw that camp impacted their children, here is a message we got from Annie Shackleton’s mum:
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping Annie have the most incredible summer at Ranch Camp. She sobbed when she left yesterday and will be returning next year. Something very special happens at camp if you allow yourself to embrace every aspect, and she has in bundles! We can’t wait to have her back home, but now she is off to LA with new friends.
With so much pleasure, joy and excitement we are going to Israel this winter. Jewish Camps USA and Israel Experience this winter are going to Israel with Birthright.
We have camp alumni ready to continue their journey and now for years to come this will be offered to every JCUSA staff member after their experience at camp.
JCUSA are now in partnership with AEPi helping to strive towards their mission: The mission of Alpha Epsilon Pi is to develop the future leaders of the world’s Jewish communities.
Jess Monty – Unit Head for London, Bristol and surrounding areas: “I spent two summers up the tall green mountain at Camp Mountain Chai in California as a general counsellor. I was lucky enough to feel as though I made a real difference to the kids and the camp. This included being a Macabbia Captain but also my exciting programmes, where I was able to take different aspects of British culture to America.
This year, my aims for my units are to create a community-like vibe where everyone (despite going to different camps) shares the love for camp itself. To my lovely ambassadors, thanks for supporting me and JCUSA! I hope you continue to do so as we put on more events on campus to show everyone how and why camp is so important.”
