Hello Rachel,

As the year comes to an end, I am so proud to be able to look back on a successful year and express my gratitude to you all. In 2022 our campers enjoyed Shabbat in our beautifully renovated amphitheater and flew through the air at our new ropes course. We navigated another Covid summer (without sending campers home early), and continued our mission of creating life-changing experiences for our campers and staff. To top it all off, we welcomed more than 175 alumni to join us at Alumni Weekend for the first time since 2019.

More than 75% of last summer's campers have already registered during our early bird (with more still incoming!) and new campers are counting down the days to experience their first summer at Perlman. We appreciate your continued support in spreading the word about Perlman to your communities.

We are so appreciative of all our community's support on Giving Tuesday, which raised more than $11,500 to be matched by our generous donors. We continue to ask for your support in the coming weeks as we continue to maximize on all of our matching opportunities in 2022.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to share that Ariel Rehr, our Assistant Director of Communications and Development, is moving on from her time on the year-round Perlman Camp team. We are so grateful to Ariel for her hard work and dedication to camp in so many positions over the years, and wish her all the best as she explores new opportunities.

We wish you all a Happy Hanukkah and healthy and happy new year, and look forward to connecting with you in 2023.


Rachel Levine

Director, Perlman Camp


Thank you to everyone who supported Perlman on Giving Tuesday. We raised over $11,500 just on that day alone - all of which is being matched!

If you did not yet make your end-of-year gift, please consider giving to Perlman Camp prior to December 31. All donations are being matched 1:1, so every gift goes further to meeting our fundraising goals!

After an incredibly successful Alumni Reunion this summer, we look forward to making the event an every-other-year experience. Plan to join us again in 2024 for an Alumni-focused weekend of friends and fun! Dates will be announced soon for either the second or third weekend in August 2024.

Interested in returning to camp this summer? We are also exploring potential volunteer opportunities for those alumni interested in a community service day, helping with camp setup or arrival logistics, or other camp needs. Click below to learn more as information becomes available.
