Carrie Bernstein actually started camp at the JCC as a Teen Travel camper (how ironic!) She started working as a lifeguard at the age of 15 and has never left the JCC. She ran the famous Family Park campgrounds for a few summers. Carrie worked for 2 years as an accountant, but her heart was never in it. She quickly realized that she had to return to camp, so in 1988 she became the Maccabiah Director. Some of her original counselors’ children are now attending her camp! This may make her sound old, but she is still feeling young and having the best time of her life!
