Meet your 2017 Camp Director!
Yosef MillerHi, my name is Yosef Miller and I have spent almost all of my adult life in the world of Jewish education and programming. I so much enjoy watching today's youth develop into the next generation of Jewish leaders and role models.
I am so looking forward to joining the Temple Menorah youth team, and I have been so impressed with their community involvement and their commitment to Jewish education.
A few facts about me: I have lived on three continents, I am a die-hard New England Patriots fan (not a band-wagoner), I used to be a drummer in a band and I am committed to the Jewish future!

Two Camps to Rule Them All
Camp Menorah (k-6th Grade)Campers are grouped by age and/or grade, lead by both senior and junior counselors. In addition to the camp activities, campers go swimming and/or field trips each week. Programs stimulate camper imagination, encourage critical thinking and Jewish experiential learning, making their experience at camp like no other! 5th and 6th graders will have a project-based camp experience. Every few weeks a project will be introduced, to be worked on from conception to completion in their time at camp.Minimum 2-week enrollment.
Club Noar (7th-9th)Campers are ready to take on leadership opportunities! Planning their own events, CIT Training and even marketing, campers start to understand the meaning of responsibility. Each week these teams will focus on specific traits of camp staff, gaining insight into the importance of these characteristics and skills.Minimum 2-week enrollment.

Camp Menorah strives to provide our campers with a safe, nurturing Jewish camp experience and well-rounded, quality programs. Our goal is to instill pride in Judaism through a dynamic combination of athletics, water sports, arts & crafts, field trips and enriching activities. Campers will develop an understanding of what it means to be a part of a Jewish community, and learn about themselves as individuals. By exposing our campers to the beauty of our Jewish heritage, we proved them with amazing memories that will strengthen their Jewish identity.
Safety & TransportationCampers are assigned to groups according to age and grade. Each group has a trained and reliable team of counselors responsible for their safety. For identification purposes, camp t-shirts, free with registration, must be worn on all field trips. Transportation for all field trips will be provided in buses equipped with seat belts and driven by trained, experienced and licensed bus drivers.
