The JCC Camps at Medford is pleased to announce the hiring of new senior staff members for Summer 2017.

“We are ecstatic to welcome new members to our Leadership Team,” said Beth Segal, JCC Camps at Medford director. “They are incredible additions to our team who are excited to bring a new vision, innovative ideas and expertise to their roles, which will be an asset to our programs.”

The JCC Camps at Medford is comprised of six sub camps, each of which is supervised by the individual camp directors and assistant directors to provide multiple layers of supervision to all campers and direction to staff.

Camp Hilltop, the camp for the youngest campers ages 3-6, will be led by director Dina Wolf and assistant director Sherri Quintero. Wolf is a Business/Technology education teacher at Woodstown High School. She and her family have been members of the Katz JCC for over 19 years, and her two children, former campers, are also part of the camp staff. Quintero, a Cherry Hill native and JCC Camps at Medford alumna, previously worked at camp as the Hilltop science specialist. She is a biology teacher at Franklin Towne Charter High School in Philadelphia.

Iris Snyder has joined the team as Camp Shalom’s new assistant director. Snyder is a South Jersey native who spent her childhood summers at JCC Camps at Medford as a camper, counselor and most recently as the Camp Shalom cooking specialist. Her father attended camp at Medford and her two young children are current campers. Snyder, an experienced Jewish communal professional in South Jersey, currently works as the Family Outreach coordinator at the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey.

Camp is also pleased to welcome Ilisa Noble as the new director of Open Hearts/Open Doors, the unique special needs inclusion camp program. Noble comes to Medford with 12 years of experience in special education and over 25 years of experience working at both day and overnight camps. She is currently a middle school Special Education and Language Arts inclusion teacher in the Glassboro School District.

Meredith Levin is delighted to join the team as the director of the Coolanu program, the next step for OH/OD campers ages 14-20 who do a combination of camp programming, job skill and life skill activities. Levin is a Medford Camp alumna whose 15 summers at camp include time as a camper, CIT and science specialist. Levin has been teaching special education for 11 years at Lindenwold Middle School. Her husband Corey is a current division head in Camp Aaron and her older son can be seen running around Camp Hilltop.

Jared Kaufman, a JCC Camps at Medford alumnus, is thrilled to re-join the camp staff as aquatics director. Kaufman, who also serves as the Katz JCC’s aquatics director, was a member of the camp staff as assistant aquatics director from 2012-2015. Kaufman is a certified pool operator, American Red Cross certified lifeguard, lifeguarding instructor, and swim instructor.
