Camp Haverim knows that the success of any camp rests squarely on the shoulders of its staff, counselors, and supervisors. That is why we go to great lengths to get the very best!
Samantha Silverman first came to Camp Haverim as a camp counselor and immediately fell in love with the sweetest little Jewish day camp with the biggest heart and soul. One of her favorite parts about Camp Haverim is seeing l'dor v'dor in action, witnessing the campers grow up and return each year to become junior counselors, then senior counselors, and beyond.
Samantha has worked as a Jewish educator for over a decade and is passionate about creating programming that inspires and connects Jewish people of all ages. She is deeply committed to creating a camp culture that fosters social-emotional development and enduring community connections through Jewish values, practices, and culture. She has a BA in Jewish Studies from UCLA and an MA in Jewish Studies from Yale University.
Our senior counselors are predominantly college students. Many of our staff are themselves former campers. They care about our campers, and it shows. All our senior staff are required to pass a criminal background check and complete training in CPR, First Aid, and AED.
