SLC…Twilight….come on…

I generally don’t blog two days in a row…frankly, I don’t have the time.  Yet tonight I find myself bogged down in a mountain of paperwork and I need a break so here I am.   I read an article a while back connecting Harry Potter and Judaism.  To be honest, I don’t remember the connection […]

Are you ready for the summer?

In 1979, a little movie titled “Meatballs” was released.  I was an incredibly young CIT and if I recall correctly Tripper (played by Bill Murray) was a well-meaning head counselor  who took young Rudy (a lonely, misfit camper under his wing) and it was a summer smash!  The song are you ready for the summer still makes […]

There’s somthing happening here…

It seems that each time I sit down to blog there is a song running through my head.  Today is no different, except that the similarity ends with the title…or maybe not.

Just thinkin’ about Tomorrow […]

Made my day!

I received the following email from a former camper, Brian Brenner, on Saturday, which was my “36th” birthday (ha)…. “The year was 1986, and I was six — I mean 11 — years old. You were the division head at the SFY for Tweens 1. Those big Ray-Ban were the style at the time, and […]

The Countdown……….

I look at the camp countdown and it tells me we have 78 days until the campers arrive…..that means we are getting close!  Staff arrive prior to that…it is starting to feel a lot like camp.  I went up to camp last week, and I am embarassed to say that I had not been there […]
