summer months, he said, provide
the widest time span for working
creatively with our children . . .
Os course, being a summer
camp for children plugger, this
line of talk made me very happy !
and gives me a wonderful open- j
ing.
For many years the South was
almost completely minus good
camps for children . . . Now the
need is being competently met,!
and our Southern camps are in
many aspects surpassing the ones
in other parts of the country . . . |
Such camps as Blue Star near
Hendersonville, N. C., owned and
directed by Southerners meets the
needs of the children which it
services . . . Here children who
come from small communities
have an opportunity of obtaining
along with an athletic program
needed hours of Hebrew training
which they cannot obtain in their
home town. Like all camps it also
offers an opportunity for children
isolated from other Jewish com
munities to socialize with Jewish
children.
This past week-end I had the
opportunity of meeting the Direc
tor of another Southern camp . . .
and here again I was impressed
with a desire to serve the chil- !
dren of this area . . . Our week
end visitor was Bea Komisar,
owner and director of Camp Belle
Aire, near Sparta, Tennessee . . .
Mrs. Komisar has had many
years of experience in directing
camps and working with children
—professionally, and naturally
. . . She is the mother of five
children ... The parent of a teen
age daughter, she knows the
needs of the teen-agers and is ;
planning a charm school for the
girls . . .
The question arises: with a
family of that size who has time
for camp work? .. . But with Bea,
camp is a passion, and a chal
lenge to create something not
only for her own brood—but for
all children . . . And Mrs. Komi- '

In Florida, summer starts in May
I with those fantastic temperature rises
| that come every year .. . Annually they
seem always to take us by surprise . . .
Then the rush to the Beach or Lake
starts and with it the challenging prob
lem: what to do with the children? . . .
At a recent Sisterhood meeting the Du
val County Director of Instruction in
Public Schools pointed out that children
spend more time away from the class
room than they do in it, and therefore,
it is the parents’ duty to see that those
nours are spent productively . . . The
sar is the one with the energy and
determination to ao it . . .
I was impressed with the fact
that Belle Aire has a kosher kit
| chen . . . Bea, herself, is a Jewess
I of Reform persuasiam . . . How
i ever, she wants children of all
shading of Jewish religious ob
servance in her camp, and hence
the kosher food . . .
On many occasions I have been
| asked to recommend camps for
: children . . . Always I have been
most happy to do so . . . Different
children need different types of
camping experiences, and some
times a change of camps is bene
ficial —sometimes it is not . . .
There are some young people who
do not make good campers . . .
Some boys and girls fit into a
camp program when they are
very young . . . Others benefit
most when they are teen-age . . .
The best judge of that is usually
the child . . . The incentive, how
ever, must come from the par
ents . . .
An investigation into the edu
cational, athletic, cultural and
social benefits camping will give
the child is worth the effort of
every parent . . . Not to be for
gotten in the summer camp pro
gram are the excellent day camp
programs offered by many com
munities . . . Summer months can
be creative months . . . Jewish
educators in the South have risen
to the challenge with which the
empty ho t months confronted
the boys and girls below the
Mason-Dixon line . . . and today
the South’s camps are literally
making a place for themselves in
jttye sun . . .
