Ready, Set, Summer!
Why do our kids need summer camp more than ever? How can we best prepare our children for their first, second or even third year of summer camp after two years of pandemic living? What tools can we help our child sharpen for creating deep social connections and lasting memories? Join the URJ Northeast Camps’ Executive Director Debby Shriber as she shares her over 20 years of overnight camping experience, wisdom, and insight in helping us prepare our children for their most magical summer.
