Communications Specialist

It’s mid-summer and I haven’t been writing many articles for my school newspaper or myself, which is one reason I haven’t been posting to this blog. Another reason, and the main one at that, is I have been working as Communications Specialist at Habonim Dror Camp Moshava, a Jewish Labor-Zionist socialist summer camp in Maryland. Habonim Dror is a worldwide youth movement and Mosh is a part of Habonim Dror North America.

I have grown up at Camp Mosh since I was 11. It is an exciting and different experience to come back as a counselor/Communications Specialist. I’ve really been enjoying writing and documenting a place I know and love with people I care about.

I created a blog for the summer called Camp Moshava Communications 2011. I have been writing daily posts for the blog, explaining events and values Habonim holds and Mosh adheres to and translating Hebrew to English for parents. I also photograph and video daily and special events. I respond to parent e-mails and inquiries and create a video slideshow at the end of the summer. Visit the blog, as well as the Facebook page, YouTube or Twitter for more information about Camp Mosh and what happens during the summer.

Once the school year begins I plan on writing several articles a week for the University of Maryland student newspaper, The Diamondback.
