JIT Hill. The Bog. Milkline. Skidoodler. The Chapel. Lake Wendy… if you get a warm fuzzy feeling when you hear those words, then you are in the right place… Our Summer Place! Our community of former campers and staff shares a powerful connection to Camp Barney, and we often recall the time spent at CBM as “the best summers of our lives.”
Our alumni activities and initiatives provide the opportunity for all former campers and staff from 1963 through today to:
- Bring the CBM Community together, linking fellow alumni from all decades who share the common bond of Camp Barney Medintz.
- Connect with the history, the traditions, the place, and the “magic” of Camp Barney. For many of us, Camp is one of the primary ways through which we identify with Judaism and our community.
- Support Camp and Camp families through volunteer opportunities and financial support.
You can get that Barney Medintz spirit all over you and all year long by attending events and reunions, reading the newsletter, sharing pictures, stories, and camp relics in The Ark, and taking part in volunteer opportunities.
When we connect with other Camp Barney alumni, we have the opportunity to share stories, reminisce, and maybe even play some Jewish Geography. We can create a little bit of Camp wherever we are and ensure that the traditions, the magic, and the memories of Camp will stay with us always. Together we can guarantee that the CBM legacy will live on for today’s campers and tomorrow’s.
Hope to see you soon under the green of the pine trees and the blue of the sky…
