I have been going to day camp and overnight camp for as long as I can remember, and worked as a counsellor at several different Jewish camps once I was too old to be a camper, including JCK. I am passionate about both the sciences and the arts, and I truly believe in the need for everybody to have a creative outlet, which is one of the reasons why l love JCK camps!
