Parents, with summer fast approaching, we would like to update you with Camp Solomon Schechter's security profile. Schechter has a renowned Emergency Response Plan (ERP) that others seek to implement. Our ERP is routinely shared as a sample of best practices for summer camps, and our Executive Director, Sam Perlin, is often being asked for advice.

From February 19 through February 21, I attended the Song Leader Boot Camp in St. Louis Mo. Put on by Rick Recht and Jewish Rock Radio. It was an incredible experience. At the workshop I learned what is needed to develop song leaders at camp and create a community of song leading at Camp Solomon Schechter.

Camp Solomon Schechter is a beautiful, happy place. It is a place our children go to learn, to grow, to try new things, to become independent, and to meet other Jewish children and live a Jewish life. We foster and encourage habits such as tikkun olam

I am always amazed to see how well the goals of camp are met each summer. The transformation for a camper from the first day of camp to the last is so clear! Camp Solomon Schechter teaches young Jews of all backgrounds the skills for living Jewishly.

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of Goldie Stampfer, z"l. With her husband of 72 years, Rabbi Joshua Stampfer, Goldie was a beloved founder of Camp Solomon Schechter and a tireless advocate for creating a place "where Judaism and joy are one" for every camper.
