LEADERSHIP STAFF

Camp Gilboa’s staff support and mentor the youth leadership and ensure that they are creating a meaningful and magical program within a safe and healthy camp environment.

Elana has been part of the Gilboa family since 2013, after spending 12 years as a camper and on staff at our Habonim sister camp in Canada, Camp Miriam. She holds a master's degree in Organizational Leadership from HUC-JIR, where she deepened her passion for progressive Jewish community and education, and found an even greater appreciation for the mission, values, and culture of Habonim Dror and Camp Gilboa. In the non-camp months, you can catch her playing hockey, swimming in the ocean, and bringing friends together over Shabbat dinner. Elana and her sweet pup Fievel are so excited to get us back to camp and lead us through an incredibly fun and safe summer!

YOUTH LEADERSHIP

Gilboa counselors are known for their boundless energy, huge hearts, and passionate idealism. They collectively create a summer and year-round curriculum meant to inspire and empower campers. College-aged counselors are summer educators and mentors and are joined by high school CITs during the year. Together they help grow each camper’s individual strengths, building their leadership, critical thinking, and teamwork skills. They are supported by year-round staff who train and advise them.

 

Graduates of Camp Gilboa and Habonim Dror leadership programs go on to engage in the community, becoming leaders and activists in social justice, communal and Israel-related organizations during and after college.
