One of the best parts about Camp Shai is connecting with new friends!

The other best part of camp is connecting with the counselors. At Camp Shai we only hire the best – and we’re so excited to have a number of your favorite counselors coming back again this summer! There’s a lot more familiar faces from last summer, but a few of our favorites are…


Austin

What summer will this be for you at Camp Shai?

Austin: This will be my second year at Camp Shai.

Why do you like being a counselor at Camp Shai?

A: I like being a counselor at Camp Shai because I want to be a Nurse Practitioner in Pediatrics as my future career, so being a counselor gives me the ability to impact lives for children and make their experience the best it can be. I love making sure every child is included and is fully present in the moment when we are at camp so they can make quality friends, grow, and learn.

What was a favorite memory at Camp Shai last summer?

A: My favorite memory was working with my group (Chaverim) where we always had a great time, we would play their favorite songs through the hallways, always laugh, and goof around. At the same time, my favorite memory was being able to be their mentor and role model for my group, which I came to appreciate and so did my campers.

What are you looking the most forward to for this summer?

A: I look forward to making an amazing and exciting atmosphere for these children so that everyday they come home and are non-stop talking about what exciting new things they did that day at camp.
