Camp Emunah, the flagship Camp for Chabad girls, has closed on 100 acres of magnificent campgrounds in the Catskill Mountains.
This purchase will expand the current grounds of Emunah Camps, which are currently the Camp Emunah and Teen Camp grounds, both located in Greenfield Park, NY. The new property is located nearby, just across the camp’s Windsor Lake.
“This new property will ensure there is adequate space for all girls that want to attend summer camp,” Camp Director Rabbi Hanoch Hecht said.
Much of the funds for this new parcel came from the recent successful crowdfunding campaign held in honor of the late Rebbetzin Chave Hecht OBM, the founder and director of the camp. “The additional funds needed will G-d willing be raised from generous donors in the coming weeks,” the directors said.
“As plans unfold with the continued expansion of camp Emunah we will keep the camp Emunah family and the Lubavitcher community updated,” they said. “We thank all the generous donors to the Camp Emunah campaign.”
