Best Summer Ever 2022


Dear Friends,

Can you believe we are halfway into July? We hope you have been enjoying every minute of your summer. But is it the “Best Summer Ever?” For many at the Kaiserman JCC, from our Diller Teen Fellows experiencing Israel, to our JCC Maccabi athletes preparing to travel to San Diego to compete, to our campers in Camp Kef, it just might be.

Last fall we launched the Best Summer Ever Fund to ensure everyone can have an incredible summer. This fund benefits Camp Kef and ensures scholarships are available for maximum accessibility to our seasonal offerings. In addition, the Best Summer Ever Fund contributes to the inclusivity of Camp Kef, enhancing programming for young people with disabilities, and further fostering an atmosphere of inclusion across camp. As a result of the Best Summer Ever Fund, countless young people who might not have been able to experience a robust, educationally rich summer experience like Camp Kef are thriving right now at the Kaiserman JCC.

Yesterday, we announced an opportunity to support this fund, while having some fun along the way! One of the highlights of our summer has been the introduction of our zoom flume, a giant waterslide. By hitting fundraising milestones along the way, we will send staff members down our Zoom Floom and into a pool of Shaving Cream! Depending on how much we raise, we will send a certain number of staff down in the last week of camp. And, of course, we will video the whole thing and email it out to all the camp families.

We are hoping to raise $3,600 with this campaign to support the Best Summer Ever Fund. At that number – I’m going down personally! Help us support the campaign, and send me, and the rest of our amazing staff, down the flume, by donating here.

Have a great weekend! Shabbat Shalom!
