Dear Beber Camp Families,

I am pleased to announce the newest addition to our full-time Beber Camp team.  Please join me in welcoming Abby Mintz as our new Assistant Director of Camper and Staff Life. Abby will be overseeing Camper life, our Teen Leadership Program, Judaics and the Staff experience.

Abby first went to Jewish summer camp in 1995 then spent 8 years as a camper before becoming a counselor, Assistant Unit Head, and Day Camp Director. She attended Vanderbilt University where she earned a M.Ed. in Human Development Counseling and B.S. in Human and Organizational Development. From there she spent time living in India and Israel where she conducted educational research and enjoyed traveling both countries. Upon her return to the States, she worked in project management, business strategy and administration for for-profits in the student enrichment and summer camping space, while also volunteering as a clinical counselor. Abby is passionate about building communities that encourage personal growth and she believes deeply in the value of the overnight Jewish summer camp experience. Abby even loves camp so much that she actually got married there! She is thrilled to join the Beber community!

We are delighted to welcome Abby to our team, and look forward to introducing her to all of you in the coming months and at camp this summer.  You can reach Abby at abby@bebercamp.com or in our office at 847-677-7130. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.  I hope you all enjoyed your holiday and best wishes for the coming year.
