Sarah Weissman, Camp Director 

Sarah is no stranger to the Albany JCC and camp world. Her passion for camping started when she attended Camp Shalom right here at the JCC, and then spent 13 summers at URJ Eisner and URJ Crane Lake Camps starting out as a camper and ending up being a unit head for 3rd - 5th graders. She still remembers the name of her bunk counselors and has those fond memories of maccabiah and campfires! Sarah spent 4 years working at the Bender JCC of Greater Washington in Rockville, Maryland as their camp program director and youth and teen director where she ran their afterschool program for 2 1/2 years. Jewish summer camps play a big role in Sarah's life along with working with children and she is excited to be back at the Albany JCC as the camp director. Sarah has a Bachelors Degree in Marketing from SUNY Buffalo and a Masters Degree in Education from The College of Saint Rose. 

Sarah is counting down the days until camp starts!



Max Burman, Assistant Site Director at Olam 

Max attended Camp Olam as a child and spent 5 summers working at Olam as a counselor and specialist. Max is excited to take on a new role this summer as assistant site director. Max attends SUNY Geneseo and will be graduating this May with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and his teaching certificate in social studies. He is on the rugby team at school and works part time off campus. When the weather is warm Max loves to hike and canoe. 

Max is very excited for everything that this summer holds!
