Owner & Director

Welcome to Camp Tikva! I have had a passion for day camp since my days at Super Camp in the 1980s! I loved the freedom to run and play with my friends, develop my independence, try new things and have fun every day.

I am an educator at heart and by training. For the past 13 years I have worked at the March of the Living both as the Toronto Director and the Associate National Director. Throughout my years at the March of the Living I wrote curriculum, trained Chaperones and organized Shabbaton weekends and trips to Poland and Israel.

I have a passion for the Jewish community, fostered in my teen years through the B’nai Brith Youth Organization and then through my overnight camp and Israel experiences. With training in primary/junior education and experience as an informal educator in the Jewish Community at large, as Camp Director, my leadership and joy of Jewish learning will be sure to shine through to your children.

I am excited to welcome all the campers and their families to Camp Tikva!

Assistant Director

Hey! My name is Adina and I am excited to be with all of you at Camp Tikva for its inaugural summer!

I am a Queen’s University graduate that studied English Literature, but as my friends and family can attest, my heart has always been with camp!

Through my summers spent at a zionist-leadership camps, I gained a deep passion for Jewish programming and education. It also solidified and grounded my zionist roots and taught me the importance of raising strong and zealous zionist leaders.

This will be my 16th summer spent at camp and I couldn’t be more excited! Since my very first summer camp experience at Camp Torolago in 2004 and my subsequent years in the Young Judaea system, I have been living and breathing all things camp!

Camp is my favourite place in the world as it is where I met all my best friends and where I learned how to truly be myself. I am super excited to give you all an amazing summer that I am sure will make you love camp just as much as I do!
