Camp Yachad - A New Perspective

Posted by: Jessica Martin on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 12:00:00 am

I am very fortunate to have two perspectives of Camp Yachad--as a counselor and as a parent. I grew up in the Westfield/Scotch Plains area and was a counselor at Camp Yachad for 5 years. At the time that I was a counselor, Rachel Toporek (our current camp photographer) was entering kindergarten and was a camper in my group.  Robin Brous was the drama specialist and eventually became the camp director and my boss.

It brings back a sense of nostalgia when I see my boys running around with their groups and the counselors playing games with them. While it seems like such a long time ago, my memories remain vivid and fond.  The JCC is a very special place to me--it's comfortable, safe and fun. My boys love it there and I know my baby girl will too. 

I cherish the moments that I have watching my kids grow, learn and have fun at Camp Yachad. Now that I am the parent and not the counselor, I may have a new perspective, but the importance of Camp Yachad in my life remains.
