Thanks for foundation grants, summer experience for future Jewish athletes is on deck for June debut.
With an emphasis on intensive sports and Jewish values, a new camp is hoping to draw scores of budding athletes from across the country next summer.
June 2010 will mark the inaugural season of the 6 Points Sports Academy, held on the facilities of the American Hebrew Academy in Greensboro, N.C. The camp will be the 13th member of the network of camps run by the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ).
A couple years ago, I learned about a new program that merges three areas I am passionate about --Jewish camping, Israel, and technology. Israel has always embraced high technology and modern communication. Part of what has made the almost sixty-year-old nation's economy flourish in the past two decades has been the success of its hi-tech sector.
