The Camp B’Yachad Story
A 12 day experience that will change the life of a teenager! The camp model is a combination of activities and discussions, reflections and creative expression, role-playing games and group work, all focused on exploring the Jewish Identity of a teenager in a supportive, secular environment. The program is balanced with sports, obstacle courses and zip lines, art and music, evening activities and dance parties.
A collaborative project of Marks JCH, Shorefront YM-YWHA, and Jewish Child Care Association Bukharian Teen Lounge, this project is made possible with generous funding from the Genesis Philanthropy Group, UJA-Federation of New York & Foundation For Jewish Camp
Director of Teen Services and Special Needs | Alanna Skydell
I have had the great privilege of being a part of the Marks JCH family for the past year. I began as a Social Work Intern working in various departments including the After-School program and the Hurricane Sandy Relief Center. Upon completing my dual Master’s program in Social Work and Jewish Studies from Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary, I joined the Marks JCH Summer Day Camp as a Division Leader for 1st and 2nd graders and had a phenomenal summer experience! I then had my first exposure to Camp B’Yachad as a Division Leader for our oldest teens and fell in love with the program. I have since assumed the position as Director of Teen Services and Special Needs and am so excited to be directing Camp B’Yachad this summer.
