Jewish Camps USA

Tamarack Camps – Rebecca Lewis

Leaving London and coming here, My mind was filled with lots of fear.

Camp songs I did not know, A staff performance for the second night show.

Two weeks later and here I stand, In America, “the free land”

JCUSA this experience beats it all, 14 year old kids think I am cool!?

They chant my name to everyone around, It warms my heart, it’s a great sound.

Singing, dancing, activities galore,  I really could not want any much more

Halfway through session one, My JCUSA experience has just begun.

I can’t believe I am a part of this family, so strong I know that no matter what, nothing will go wrong

Emotions are strong, the bonds even tighter Tamarack Camps has made me brighter

Shabbat is a beautiful sight to see The tamarack team is a family

A home from home this is for me It’s the place I really want to be.
