I personally know the kraz’s and ssilberstiens. They are all selfless giving shluchim and friends:):)

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for sharing!

Kudos to the amazing staff that CGI of VsL & TMR were lucky to have! Dovid Weinbaum, your heart and soul invested into camp really showed, and there are no words to describe incredible shluchim like the Silbersteins and Kraz! Thank you for allowing our girls to see real models and be part of such a Shlichus! May this alone herald the coming of moshiach! May this camp go mechayil el chayil and always have such amazing counselors, whom they, and the campers, deserve. Our girls should all know where to go when looking for an unforgettable summer experience! Yasher… Read more »

I was one of the staff there. It’s the director who runs that camp and looks after us. He is the one that puts up with all our garbage and ran our camp. And gave us the summer of a life time. Give credit where credit is due! Thank You to the Weinbaum’s for all your hard work and for having your house open 24/7 for 6 weeks! TZIVI we miss you xxx

As a day camp counselor for many years i can say it about the treatment more than what they give. it is there attitude to the staff more than the trips. and that is what the staff like.
