Get to know the people who make Camp Yachad special! 

Mallory Saks Zipkin, Camp Director
Mallory has worked at the JCC full time for six years but has been part of the Camp Yachad staff since 2000. Mallory’s camp experience comes from years in many roles here at Yachad but also as the full-time Assistant Director at a JCC Resident Camp. Mallory is a graduate of the JCCA Merrin professional fellowship and the Foundation for Jewish Camp Yitro fellowship. Being a Camp Director has always been a lifelong career goal for Mallory, and she feels lucky every day to do this important work. Mallory’s favorite thing about her job is hiring and training our awesome camp staff every year to ensure fantastic, exciting and fun experiences for our campers. Mallory also looks forward to leading Boker Tov each morning and helping our campers and staff start their days with enthusiasm and fun! Mallory and her husband Mitch live in Fanwood with their adorable camper, Shane, and their dog, Dexter.

Barrie Schwarz, Assistant Camp Director
Barrie has spent her summers at camp in some capacity since she was three years old!  She has been a camper, CIT, group leader and unit director at both day camps and residential camps.  Most recently, Barrie spent the last two summers as the Unit Director for Chaverim at Camp Yachad.  In 2016, Barrie and her husband moved to Scotch Plains and signed their not yet two-year-old daughter up for camp before even closing on their house!  Now, BOTH of her daughters are campers at Yachad!!  They love camp ALMOST as much as their mom – it’s in their blood!  Barrie lives for the summer and can’t imagine spending her summer any other way.
