From The Bunk: Facilitating Inclusion At Camp

Editor's Note: Thanks to our friends at the Foundation for Jewish Camp for coordinating this series of blogs from camp. More voices to come!

Being a counselor in a sleep away camp for the first time is always a daunting job. In the days leading up, you wonder how in the world did these children's parents entrust us, a bunch of 16 and 17-year-old high school kids, to look after their precious cargo for 4 week? I don't know the answer to this question but I do know that despite this, parents keep sending their kids every summer; and for the right reasons.

In camp you learn a tremendous amount. You learn about yourself, other people or even a specific theme. Something Camp Moshava IO teaches is inclusion and I am a first hand witness of this. In my first year as a counselor, my fellow co-counselors and I had the privilege of having a very special camper in our bunk. She was a 10 year old girl, excited to start camp, just like everyone else.
