A First Week of Camp: From an Adult’s Perspective


By Jessica Rothbart

We have all heard about the power of sending children to Jewish camp. Sadly for our summers as working adults, very few adults get to experience the magic except by reliving the memories. In many cases, parents have not had the experience of Jewish camp themselves. Some camps offer family camp, where the entire family gets to join, but it is often outside of the timeline of the typical camp sessions.

This first-person account chronicles a Chicago rabbi as he attends camp, in full swing, for a week. And not just any week, but his very first of Jewish summer camp – EVER. He offers a unique perspective on being a staff member and first time experiences. Spoiler alert: whether you’ve been to camp or not, you may end up daydreaming about camp after you read it.
