Former OSRUI camper (and now staff member) Emily Dana posted a video on YouTube about why she loves youth group and how youth group is like camp. Here’s what she says about why she made the video:
I have been going to Jewish camp since I was 9 years old, and when I discovered youth group in eighth grade, it was like camp was all year round. I got to see my camp friends and to make new friends as well. Also, I got to learn about social action and myself simultaneously. Youth group is one of the most important things in my life, and that’s why I tried to articulate its power in my life.
