Meet the Directors

Gayle Jukofsky, Director

Gayle holds a Master’s in Education with a specialization in Counseling from Hofstra University. She has been a part of the Jewish Camping world since she was a camper and has over 8 years of Assistant Director experience. Camp is where she came into her own as a CIT, staff member, Asst. Director, and now as a Director. She recently became a mommy and can’t wait to see her son playing at camp in just a few short years! Each summer she aims to give children and staff the type of safe and fun summer experience that was so meaningful to her in her own life.
