Camper of the Week: A Problem-Solving Bunkmate


This 11-year-old from Camp Golden Slipper is already showing outstanding leadership skills this summer.

This summer, the Exponent will help you live the summer camp life vicariously in our new “Camper of the Week” series. Each week, we profile a standout camper nominated by the directors of Jewish camps around the region. 

We also want to feature a selection of letters — “hello mudda, hello fadda” anyone? — sent home from local Jewish campers attending any overnight camp around the country. If you receive a letter from your camper that you would like to share with us, please email it to: [email protected]­

Here is this week's Camper of the Week:

Avi Hurwitz, 11, Norwalk, Conn.

Camp Golden Slipper, Stroudsburg, Pa.

Favorite camp activity: Jet Skiing. 

Favorite camp food: Tacos. 

Favorite camp moment so far: Becoming a corporal for the camp color war olympics.

What have you learned about yourself so far?  That I’m a good leader!

His counselors say: He’s a leader in his bunk and when a problem arises, Avi is one of the first ones to help solve the problem.  Using his intellect, he incorporates his whole bunk and often can come up with the solution to the bunk problem.
