EKC Friends and Alumni Network (F.A.N.)

If you attended EKC, Emma Farm, Laurel Y or Lynwood or any other Jewish overnight camp, you probably experienced that unforgettable feeling of connection and community — and if you didn’t go, you may have had the good fortune to see that impact on your children who did attend camp.  Jewish overnight camping is one of the most important entry points to a lifelong Jewish community. Whether your summers at Jewish overnight camp were just a few years ago or many decades ago, you most likely look back on them with fondness and still have wonderful memories and friendships that formed at camp.  And perhaps some of you even met your significant other during your time there!

The EKC Friends and Alumni Network is our “portal” to those connections and memories. Please fill out the brief questionnaire below and be sure to forward this to anyone connected to EKC, Emma Farm, Laurel Y or Lynwood, be it past campers, parents, grandparents, other relatives, volunteers, and anyone who likes these camps.

Give Back to EKC

At EKC we are committed to making sure every child gets the opportunity to come to camp. We are also in an exciting time of growth and development when it comes to our programs and facility. None of this would be possible without the support of our alumni and larger camp community. Please help us to continue to reach our goal of becoming the premiere camp in our field by making your gift today.
