SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //

More than 700 members of the Camp Barney Medintz family gathered at “Our Summer Place” last weekend in celebration of 50 years of friendship, Jewish identity, individuality, and a connection to the great outdoors.

From Shabbat services in the Chapel, to the 50th Dedication Ceremony in The “Chippie” Amphitheater, the weekend was full of nostalgic moments.

Weekend participants took a walk down memory lane as they moved through a museum-quality exhibit curated and built by veteran camper and staff member, Matthew Bagen.

The exhibit examines the camp’s beginnings, leadership, program, Jewish spirit and community. The exhibit, entitled “Our Summer Place,” will open at the MJCCA’s Zaban-Blank Building this week.

Weekend participants all agree that the video shared on Saturday night, after Havdallah, was one of the absolute highlights of the celebration.

“It was the best part of every year of my life for 13 years,” said Lisa King Coleman, “and this past weekend I renewed having that Barney Mednitz spirit deep in my heart to stay.”
