On June 28, 153 campers were greeted by 60 staff members as the fifth summer of Camp JRF opened at a new site, the Aaron and Marjorie Ziegalman Campus of Camp JRF. The camp is located in the Poconos in South Sterling, Pennsylvania.
Camp Director Rabbi Jeff Eisenstat wrote to the parents on the first night of camp, "After more than a year of planning to move into our own camp, we are thrilled that the day has finally arrived. It is the campers that truly make camp - and we are so blessed to have them with us."
Included in the 60 staff are 11 Israelis, who are being integrated well into camp life and culture.
