Camp Haverim knows that the success or failure of any camp rests squarely on the shoulders of its staff, counselors and supervisors, so we go to great lengths to get the very best!!
Leah Savage, Assistant Camp Director
Leah is so excited to spend her eighth summer working at Camp Haverim! Leah grew up in Santa Barbara as a member of Congregation B’nai Brith, and she spent each summer from 4th grade through 8th grade attending Jewish sleepaway camps. She has loved to return to a Jewish summer camp each summer, and just like when she was a child looking forward to the next summer at camp, she is already counting down until July 16! After four years of working as a counselor with kids ranging from age 4 to 13, Leah will be focusing on creating fun programs for the kids this summer, as well as helping out with each age group where needed. Leah spent six years studying at UCLA. She began as an undergraduate majoring in history, and then received a Master’s degree from the Department of Education. When camp is not in session, Leah now lives in Long Island working on her PhD at Stony Brook University.
