When it came time for Scott Lowen
to go to summer camp, his parents,
Karen and Alan Lowen of
Farmington Hills, chose for him to
follow his sister Marissa to OSRUI,
the Reform movement's camp in
Oconomowoc, Wis. Younger brother
Aaron is also an OSRUI camper
now, too.
"My sister told me it was a lot of
fun and I thought I should try it,
too," Scott says. "I loved it. It was a
place I could go each summer and
be with other Jews."
The Jewish connection was an
important one for Lowen, a sopho-
more at North Farmington High
School. "I have learned so much
Hebrew and Jewish history. OSRUI
opened my eyes," he says.
Another eye opener was this past
summer's experience. Scott and fel-
low campers visited communities
across the country and taught them
about world hunger. Through the
Hineni program, Scott and 30 others
spent the first week of camp learning
about the topic. They wrote a play
and took their show on the road.
For the 3'/ , weeks, they visited
Jewish camps and communities and
performed their play. A four-day stay
in Atlanta was spent volunteering,
and living at, the homeless shelter
housed at the Temple, an historic
Reform congregation in the city.

Leah Sherman "dressed up" at
Camp Maas.

Those unfamiliar with overnight
camps might see the experience as an
indulgence. But the opportunities
for growth — spiritual, emotional,
and personal — stay with campers
long after grungy_socks are laun-
dered and . the duffels are stowed
away.

Debra Darvick is the author of
This jezvish Life: Stories of
Discovery, Connection and Joy
and has fond memories of Camp
Blue Star in North Carolina.
