Meet The Lavi Family
These are the people who make Camp Lavi your Summer Home
Alan manages and owns Grand Getaways, a 1200 person Passover program in Orlando, Florida. Alan is a long time Camp Lavi employee working as athletic director in the 90's and returning again in 2010.
Assistant Director & Girl's Head Counselor
Elana has been teaching early childhood at the Moriah School in Englewood, NJ for the past 10 years. She joined the Lavi Family as Lower Gurim Girls' Division Head back in 2010, and then went on to take charge of Girl's Campus as Head Counselor. We are thrilled that Elana has finally joined Camp Lavi as a full time Assistant Director!
Mike is the owner and creator of "Dube Zone", a kids athletics program in NYC, NJ and Long Island. Mike is also the co-founder of sharing seats.org , a unique charity which enables children with special needs children and various illnesses to experience the excitement of attending professional sporting events free of charge.
Yael is a certified fitness trainer and the athletic director at Mayanot High School in Teaneck, NJ. During the year Yael works on organizing creative programming for all our campers and staff members. Yael literally grew up in Camp Lavi, starting as a camper, then counselor and onto division head, returning to Camp Lavi as program director to watch her own children have the same experiences she once had.
Tamar is the backbone of everything we do here at camp. Bringing with her over a decade of experiences at Camp Lavi, she watched as her five boys grew up in camp. When in doubt, just ask Tamar!
Boy's Head Counselor
Yoel was born and raised in Jerusalem, and served as a commander in the IDF, following his post-high school Hesder studies. He then studied at Herzog College for his teaching degree. In 2012, Yoel brought Yachad to Israel and currently serves as the Executive Director of "Yachad Israel". Yoel has been a part of Camp Lavi since 2006 as a counselor and has been working as a Division Head for the past 8 years. In addition, he is responsible for the hiring of our Israeli Mishlachat each summer. Yoel has always had a tremendous relationship with his campers and counselors, and we know that his energy, enthusiasm, and kind nature will continue as Head of Boys Campus.
