Board Committees

To get more involved in the Kinderland community, please consider joining one of the following committees. Committees meet regularly, about once per month. Committees are made up of Board members and members of the Kinderland community. Meeting dates are announced in the Upcoming Events section of the website.

The Fundraising Committee brainstorms fundraising ideas, plans and provides resources for fundraising events and campaigns, and hosts fundraising events for Camp Kinderland.

Board member participants: Alice Shechter, Jenna Dabney, Steven Itzkowitz, Laura Shmishkiss, Joey Perr

The Camper Recruitment Committee organizes and hosts open houses for prospective camper families, reaches out to personal networks to raise awareness about Camp Kinderland, and represents Camp Kinderland at camp fairs.

Board member participants: Helene Potash, Jessica Rothberg, Alice Shechter, Joanna Kalb

The Community Engagement Committee works toward building community and engaging the community in supporting Kinderland’s goals and initiatives. It is tasked with informing and involving the community in year-around programming and activities, connecting Kinderlanders with each other through events and communications, and engaging the community in discussions about Kinderland’s identity and future.

Board member participants: Helene Potash, Jenna Dabney, Joey Perr, Alice Shechter

The Building Committee works closely with the facility maintenance staff to set priorities for facility maintenance, structural improvements, and new buildings. The committee meets semi-regularly in both NYC and at the camp ground in Tolland, MA.

Board member participants: Billy Rothberg, Alice Shechter, Joanna Kalb
