I’m Meryl Hattenbach, the director of Camp Shalom at the JCC of Greater Dayton. This will be my sixth summer as the camp director. I come from a robust background of Jewish camping. I grew up with the JCC summer camps: first in the day camp at the Cincinnati JCC, and then at Camp Livingston as a camper for five years and then a counselor for another four.
I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and well. As you may expect, the JCC of Greater Dayton, along with the Jewish Federation, is monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely.
The K-Club did a wonderful job starting our garden this month. We planted seeds of six different vegetables: sugar snap peas, radishes, kohlrabi (a weird looking, but delicious root vegetable), mixed lettuce, spinach and curly kale.
Hello Camp Shalom parents! We have some exciting news to share!
Reading a bedtime story is a special ritual for children and their families, and it doesn’t have to end when kids go off to Jewish Camp.
