Summer Leadership Team

Adele Stolovitz is Kid Camp Rosh (Leader) for In the City Camp.

Adele will make sure all of our youngest campers (entering Kindergarten - 5th grade) have a safe summer filled with new friends, personal growth, and tons of camp spirit (ruach).

This is Adele's fourth summer working with In the City Camp. We are thrilled to elevate her to this leadership role.

Adele is a graduate of The Weber School. This fall she will enter her sophomore year at Barnard College, Columbia University where she is active in Jewish life and the pro-Israel student movement.

Adele is excited to be back at In the City Camp and is ready to make 2017 the best summer yet!

Debra Kraar is In the City Camp's Inclusion Coordinator.

Debra works collaboratively with parents and staff to ensure ALL campers have a summer filled with fun, friendship, and personal growth.
