The theme for our arrival days this summer has been “Welcome Home”, and from the instant the bus arrived, there was music playing, and every camper received a welcome home letter from the staff.  After seeing their cabin, everyone was off on an scavenger hunt called “The Path Back Home” where they got to meet different staff members, tour camp, learn some camp songs, grab a snack in the dining hall, and of course…do a first day med check with Janice.

Tomorrow starts our business and technology programming, as well as our electives, and we already have guest mentors visiting camp prepared to introduce our new campers to the world of business and tech. Our first guest is Howie Diamond, a San Francisco based investor who has a history of entrepreneurship and touring as the manager and drummer for a rock band! Our first backstage tour is on Wednesday at Spiffy Dog Products, and that same day we get to meet the CMO of Lenovo Software and the COO of Skyport. Of course, we will also have plenty of time for recreation, music and arts and crafts.

As I’ve said before, our goal is to return your Camp Inc. camper back home a better version of themselves through their new friends, business and tech experiences, and Jewish values.
