Our goal is to assist your camper in building friendships, in fostering their Jewish identity, in acquiring new skills, and have the best summer just being kids!
"Pinemere has provided my kids the opportunities to not only make new personal connections with kids from all over, but also to connect at a deeper level with their religion. The opportunity to discover themselves in a “no technology” atmosphere is invaluable." - Amie Ewald
"My girls, now 15 and 12, have been going to Pinemere since age 8. As a Pinemere alum, it is SO special to pass the magic onto my kids and share in so many of the camp traditions plus learn of the wonderful growth that the camp has incorporated. A summer with no screens, tons of outdoor time and a focus on “old fashioned” socialization where kids get to relate in real life. The growth that happens in their summer home cannot be replicated outside of camp. They spend the year growing in school and through their activities at home but camp nurtures an entirely different, and I’d argue most valuable, skill set of relating to people, learning independence and gaining confidence to navigate challenges." - Carly Schrager
"As a camper, I always looked forward to becoming a counselor so I could give my campers their best summer, every summer experience, just like I had. Working in Arts & Crafts was an excellent leadership opportunity but really I cherish the connections I made spending time with my campers in the bunk. I also made a really strong community with the other counselors which aided in the hominess and support that I have always felt at Pinemere." - Maryn Beecher
"Being a counselor at Pinemere is like having a second family! Over the last 10 years I have had the opportunity to be a camper, counselor and then supervisor on the Pinemere team. Working at camp changed my life & that is something I'll never forget." - Hunter Segal

I am from London and came over to Pinemere to be a counselor for Summer 2022 and I can say without any doubt that I had the best summer of my life! I made SO MANY friends from around the world who I still speak to daily. I would (and have!) recommended everyone to work at Pinemere, it 100% will be the best summer.
Pinemere has been one of the most positive influences in my children’s lives. The kind and friendly atmosphere was a life changing experience for my youngest son. Until that first summer at Pinemere, my son had few friends and had little interest (or ability) to make new ones. He developed social skills during that 3 week period that carried into his school year and beyond. He now has lots of friends calling for him, has been invited to several parties, and his computer buddy list is full! Pinemere has also been greatly influential for my older son. Pinemere has capitalized on his strengths by bringing out kindness and leadership in his personality. I always see significant maturation in my son at the end of the summer. While both my kids have great friends at home, there is uniqueness in the kind of bonds that have developed with their Pinemere friends. I wish everybody could be so blessed with such deep and sincere friendships. Our family certainly feels blessed to have Pinemere in our lives.
