CA Camps - Chizuk Amuno Camps

Our Mission
CA Camps was created in furtherance of Chizuk Amuno's mission to offer informal learning and growth opportunities to school-aged children at Chizuk Amuno Congregation and Schools. By offering safe, educational, and fun programming, CA Camps will show you why you can't spell CAMP without CA!

Camp operations is led by our Camp Director, Robyn Wolf, under the guidance of a volunteer board of directors made of stakeholders across the Chizuk Amuno community including Senior Rabbi Joshua Gruenberg. Other board members include members of the Krieger Schechter Day School, Rosenbloom Religious School, and Goldsmith Early Childhood Center.

Rebecca Barker

With a lifelong passion for the camp experience, I am thrilled to have taken on the role of CIT Director at CA Camps. My journey in the world of Camp began as a young camper at the JCC, and it has been a central part of my life ever since. 

I was a counselor at Camp Milldale for 10 years, where I had the privilege of working with 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders.  I also work at Goldsmith preschool’s summer camp (where I currently teach the 4 year old program during the school year). My commitment to the camp environment continued to grow, and when the opportunity arose, I eagerly embraced a new role within CA camps. As the LIT and CIT Director, I guide 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th graders, helping them develop into remarkable counselors and instilling in them a love for camp.

I am truly dedicated to the mission of CA Camps and am excited to play a role in shaping the next generation of leaders. Together we will continue to create magical, life-changing summers for campers and maintain the spirit of adventure and camaraderie that makes camp such a special place.
