The Y Country Camp is a beautiful sleep-over camp situated on 650 acres of rolling countryside. Within our camp, we have three private lakes (one of which is used only for waterskiing and tubing), an indoor and outdoor rock-climbing wall, an indoor heated pool, two hockey rinks, basketball courts, tennis courts and much more.
The Y Country Camp prides itself on teaching campers aged 8-16 years old how to be positive leaders in their community and keeping them connected to judaism by using formal and informal education at camp.
Marni has been working with children in a variety of roles for over 25 years; caring, nurturing and teaching them. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Kindergarten and Elementary education from McGill University, as well as a BA in Child Studies from Concordia University. Since graduating in 2002, Marni has been teaching English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Robotics from Kindergarten to Grade 6 at a private day school in Montreal.
Summer camp is very dear to Marni; she was a camper and a camp counsellor and spent the last 15 years as Camp Coordinator at a large accredited day camp in the Montreal region. [expand title="Read More"]
Marni is excited to be joining the YCC family and loves that YCC is all about putting the campers first. Working together with Stephen and the rest of the team, we are confident that Marni’s strong leadership skills, high standards and experience in the camping industry will make a huge impact on the Y Country Camp and help ensure that our campers will enjoy a safe, healthy, and fun filled summer.
Marni and her husband Jesse have two children, Morgan and Oliver. The family is looking forward to their first magical summer at YCC.[/expand]
"Hosting Shlichim during the summers remains a wonderful experience for our family. Each year we meet dynamic and fascinating young Israelis with whom we maintain contact long after the summer has gone. Our kids are the greatest beneficiaries of the experience, finding in the Shlichim individuals who they come to regard as older siblings. It is an event we look forward to every year with good reason and plan on continuing for years to come."

Connecting with Israel
“Although it was so new, Israel brought upon me a familiar sense of belonging much like what I feel at Camp Chi every summer. The ability to be in a place where one feels so free and proud to be a Jew is a feeling that makes me so proud to be involved in my Jewish heritage.”
- Joshua Krawitz, 17, Camp Chi, JCC Chicago
