RECAP - by Amy Paquette
On Sunday, April 28th, the teens split into groups and visited two different sites. First, they went to Treehouse, the only agency in King County and provides youth in foster care with essential and academic supports the deserve to help them graduate at the same rate as their peers wtih a plan for the future. Second, the teens visited with Emaily from the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center regarding the Phoenix Project, a therapy to improve outcomes for homeless youth impacted by trauma.
HaMotzi at every meal, Shabbat candles every week, Jewish kids and Jewish culture 24/7. These are just a few of the powerful experiences that Jewish camps provide.
Jewish camp is a place to develop and create a Jewish community, to find Jewish roots, to connect to the land and people of Israel and to live a Jewish life. It's where Jewish passion, creativity, and spirituality grow and where leadership skills develop. It's where our community's next generation is nurtured.
