Maddy is back! Camp Director 2020

Hello! My name is Maddy Gibson and I am a Communicative sciences and Disorders Student at the University of Redlands. I am graduating in 2020! I went to Camp Chai as a camper and grew up through the CIT program up to head counselor. After 8 summers I worked at a Jewish sleep away camp in Santa Barbara called Camp Akiba I worked as a counselor, camp medic, and Unit Head. I had the experience of working  at Silver Gan Izzy an Orthodox Jewish camp as a lifeguard and sports coach. I love the outdoors and leading campers out to enjoy the sun and get familiar with the beautiful world around them. I think that immersing oneself in nature is the first way to become reconnected to the world. I am excited to have the honor of weaving elements of tikkun olam, chaverim, ruach, and much more into the tapestry of camp to establish a strong foundation in Jewish identity from a young age. I look forward to meeting all of you and your enthusiastic campers!
