The following was submitted by the JCC of the North Shore:
The JCC of the North Shore is proud to announce several exciting additions to its award winning Summer on the Hill camps, including the arrival of new Camp & Community Engagement Director Josh Ackman.
Ackman has a strong background in youth programming.
“I bring a passion for camping and Jewish education,” Ackman said. “I look forward to making an impact in the lives of our campers and members, working with the amazing JCC staff and creating some interactive and innovative programs.”
Ackman’s role is year-round and he will be collaborating with local Jewish agencies on youth and family programming. You can reach Ackman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The JCC is also welcoming Melissa Caplan as director of its new Special Needs Inclusion program at Summer on the Hill camps. The program will welcome children ages 3 years and older with special needs.
“They’ll have an opportunity to make new friends and share new experiences, but mostly – to feel like part of their peer group, to have a true sense of belonging,” said Caplan, who has more than 20 years of experience working with children with disabilities.
For more information about the Special Needs Inclusion program, contact Melissa Caplan at email@example.com.
“We are excited to work with Josh and Melissa and to offer families even more impressive programming this summer and year round,” said Exec. Director Marty Schneer.
Summer on the Hill camps are located on the JCC’s 11-acre campus in Marblehead and welcome toddlers to teens. New this summer: Outdoor Adventure Camps (featuring an overnight), Kids Action Zone and J’s Got Talent Music Camp. Popular specialties are returning, too, including Robotics, Dance, Premier Hoops, Golf, Soccer, Art and more.
