Summer Camp Links: March 10-16

The Philadelphia region was slammed with a snow storm this week so I ended up spending a lot more of my down time with a snow shovel in hand than I’m accustomed to in March so the links are on the short side this week. Let me know what I missed while I was digging out at 

• The algemeiner has a story on the “Jewish Jordan” Tamir Goodman and the summer camp he now runs.

• A study shows that “Kids Are Better Friends When They Spend Time Away From Screens.”

• Camp Walden co-director Liz Stevens writes about her family’s legacy of camp leadership for the Jewish News Service.

• Two of the members of the pop-punk band Charly Bliss – Dan Shure and Spencer Fox – first met at summer camp as kids. “We were in bands at camp, and we’d do covers of Green Day and Red Hot Chili Peppers. There are a lot of recordings of us doing Radiohead. It’s like, really embarrassing,” Dan Shure said in an interview with Fader.
