Leadership Team

WENDY SOOS

Executive Director 

I am thrilled to be entering my 15th year at camp! Watching my two sons and all of their friends grow throughout our JCC Camp programs has been such a joy. Creating a summer experience filled with lifetime memories of songs, stories and laughter is why we live "10 months for 2." Love switching "hats" in the summer time and leading camp.

 

Together with our AMAZING Leadership Team we will provide your campers with the single best Jewish Day Camp experience. We thank you for sharing your children with us and you have my commitment that we will keep them safe, happy and loved.

JENNIFER KRAVITZ 

Assistant Director

I can’t believe this will be my 11th summer at the JCC Abrams Camp – time sure does fly by! I spend most of the off-season planning for another amazing summer experience. I am your “go to girl” if there is anything our camp families need. I have two children Sam and Noah who look forward to their last day of school and their first day of camp! Camp is a place where my children can just be kids, reunite with their friends, try new things all while making tons of memories!

DEB RADIN

Assistant Camp Director & Unit Director for "Doves" (2nd-3rd grades)

I have been part of JCC Abrams Camps for the past 21 years along with my two children, Jared and Erica. To me, camp provides a second home where our second family meets each summer to reunite as if we had never left for the school year. Throughout the winter months, I enjoy planning for the next camp season, teaching at Adath Israel religious school, and facilitating anti-bullying program through the Girls Unlimited Program and the Peace Center. There is no place I would rather be each summer than with your children surrounded by songs, smiles, sunshine, forming friendships, and creating fun! I am looking forward to yet another fabulous summer!

ROBIN SMOLARZ

Unit Director for "Robins" (Prek-1st grades)

I am so excited for another summer of action packed fun! I feel truly honored to spend my days with our youngest campers (Prek-1st grade)! As an early childhood educator, I love to combine my passion for working with young children with my love of all things Abrams Day Camp!! I have been a JCC Abrams kid since the summer of 1981, and camp truly feels like a second home to me. I have worn many different hats in my past, from camper to counselor, specialist and unit director. My kids Joel, Jacob and Ruthie are here for their 8th summer, sharing my Abrams ruach!  We like to think of ourselves as Abrams lifers!

STACEY ALBOUM

Unit Director for "Hummingbird" (4th-6th grades) & "Madrichim" (10th grade)

I'm so excited for my 5th summer on the Leadership Team!  My husband Scott and I enjoy spending time with our 4 kids, Zoey, Sammy, Alexa, and Teddy. During the school year, I am a teacher in Manalapan, but summers at camp are my favorite time of year! I have always loved going to and working at camp. I love seeing campers have fun, learn and gain confidence as they explore new things. Camp to me is all about fun, friendship and ruach.  I can't wait for the summer!

HARRIS AARON

Unit Director for "Teen Inc." (7th-9th grades)

I am excited for my 10th summer at JCC Abrams Camp. I have been a Unit Director for several age groups and look forward to working with our teen campers this summer. We will enjoy all that camp has to offer and explore new interests along the way. I teach middle school during the year, but there is nowhere I'd rather be than at camp in the summer. The JCC has been a second home for me and my 3 children, and I hope everyone feels that way based on the amazing times we'll have together this summer!

Camp Administrative Director

I am excited to be at JCC Abrams Camps for my 9th summer. I have two children, Eliana and Joshua who can’t wait for camp to begin. Every year I love welcoming back our camp families, as well as meeting our new ones! It’s amazing to see the campers grow and mature from year to year.  I look forward to a fun camp season!

MATT STROBER

Unit Director for Specialists & Security

I am very excited to be back at camp for the 8th year.  Sports have been a passion of mine throughout my entire life. I have played on competitive ice hockey, football, lacrosse, baseball, and soccer teams; however, ice hockey has always been my passion. Currently, I am a Physical Education and Health Teacher in Edison and coach ice hockey & track. I believe that kids learn so many important life lessons like teamwork, communication, and how to win and lose with class, while playing sports and being on sports teams. I will also be overseeing our camp-wide Let's Move season and color war games. My goal for the summer is to help campers gain confidence in their athletic abilities, and make playing sports fun for everyone.
