Growing up in the JCC Camps

Ever since I can remember, all of my summer memories took place at the Toronto JCCs. I started attending The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp at the age of three, and as I grew older, I began working as a seasonal camp staff member, gaining valuable life skills along the way. I immediately knew that I wanted to give other children the same opportunity that I had, which is why my transition into a full-time JCC camp director was a natural fit. Providing other children with a meaningful Jewish camp experience and further developing strong and confident future leaders in our community has been an incredibly fulfilling experience.

Over the years, camp has not only given me the opportunity to create lasting friendships and meaningful relationships, but also it has led me to my bashert, Danielle, who I now call my wife. JCC day camp has shaped who I am and who I want to become, and it will continue to always hold a special place in my heart.
