The thing I like best about Visiting Day is that beautiful moment of reunification, when a child and parent see each other and literally leap into each other’s arms. The other supervisors and I sit at that table on Lakeside and our own eyes well with tears at the sight.  It was very nice meeting all of you parents today, even if it was just a quick hello.

People often ask me how I can manage to work such long hours at such a “demanding job.” Although the question is flattering in many ways, the answer is easy to describe.

Let’s make that, best harvest time.

In truth, we start harvesting as soon as the buses arrive at the end of June.  The farm is designed to provide us with fresh fruit and vegetables to enjoy every day of camp and for post-camp programs like Get Your Feet Wet, Family Camping Weekend, Rosh Hashanah, and Sukkot.
