Following Up on Intensive Jewish Experiences

By Amy L. Sales

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, March 2008

At her bat mitzvah, my daughter stood before the congregation and explained that she deigned to live at home and go to school for ten months because she knew that, in return, she got to go to camp for two months. The former was payment for the latter. A true camper, she divides the year into the two months and the ten months. Unfortunately, for many such children, Jewish life and learning exists almost exclusively during the two months. Is it feasible to bring the two months into the ten, to extend the Jewish possibilities of camp into the school year?
