Camp Jenny 2019 Newsletter: Volume 5

From the Leadership Team

Hey everyone! I’m Alec Schwartz and I’m a junior from NFTY-STR in Boca Raton, FL and I’m super excited to be a Tweens Unit Head for Camp Jenny 2019! This is my second year at Camp Jenny and I could not be more honored to be going to Camp Jenny again this year! I am the President of the Camp Jenny Club at my school and have worked so hard the past few months with my co-unit head Nicole and the leadership team to raise funding, plan programs, and ensure everything is perfect for Camp Jenny next weekend! (YES NEXT WEEKEND WHAT!?!) Besides NFTY, I am an active member of my drama troupe and a member of the Medical Academy at my school. I CANNOT wait more than anything to see you all at the Whole New World of Camp Jenny 2019!!!

From the Leadership Team

Hey everyone! My name is Nicole Wasserman and I am one of the Tweens Unit Heads!! I’m a senior from Boca Raton, FL and love all things NFTY, dogs, or UF related (go gators). This will be my second Camp Jenny and I could not be more excited! These last few months, I have had the pleasure of working with the most AMAZING team in order to help make Camp Jenny 2019 the best it can be! I have had so much fun co-writing unit programs (for the best unit ever) and working with the greatest group of counselors! I can’t wait to see everyone and meet the 2019 campers in less than two weeks!
