Simone has been part of Eden Village’s leadership team since 2012. She is responsible for all Eden Village programming while simultaneously supervising all counselors and specialists who transform her ideas into action. During the past nine years Simone has visioned, developed and grown Eden Village’s one-of-a-kind programming to include innovative, age-appropriate opportunities unique to the community. Simone led the teams that oversaw the creation and expansion of the flagship Food and Farm Road Trip, Pizza Trip, Farming Apprenticeship, farm-to-table curriculum, herbalism programming, scheita opportunity, Home(in)stead program – and the list goes on. 

In short, if a camper did something cool at Eden Village, Simone created it. Her warmth, humor, creativity and fearless wisdom in the field of Jewish camping are a blessing to Eden Village, and she is the backbone upon which camp runs.

After graduating from McGill University, Simone worked for a sustainability non-profit in the Philadelphia area. Simone grew up in camp and community, spending 13 years learning and educating with Habonim Dror, after which she worked in synagogues, community centers and after-school programs to facilitate creative Jewish experiential learning. Her spiritual and environmental practice was further shaped through living in community at Findhorn Ecovillage in Scotland, participating in the ADAMAH farming fellowship, and working as a Jewish environmental educator with the TEVA Learning Alliance. 

Simone is the mother of two awesome toddlers. She loves crafting and singing and playing with her family and community.

Dear Friend,

It’s become clear that now, more than ever, our campers need the love and community of Eden Village Camp. That’s why we are committed to opening camp for Summer 2021, with whatever precautions are required to ensure the safety of all our children and staff. 

The degree to which camp is a precious and powerful gift to our children is increasingly apparent everyday – a Jewish community rooted in kindness, nature connection, and creative living where our children can be the most vibrant and thriving versions of themselves

I don’t know all the details of what camp will look like next summer or how COVID-19 will impact our community, but the safety of your children is the most important thing.  There are still many details we are working out for the summer and we will keep you informed every step of the way.

I’m so grateful to be in partnership with you as we re-build Eden for 2021!

With care,
