Special to the Jewish News
here is nobody like mom
and dad when you are sick.
You look for a familiar face,
smile or caring words to make you
feel better. For thousands of children
who have left their parents to attend
Tamarack Camps, that familiar face is
Blumberg, Tamarack's director
of health and safety for 18 years,
along with community nurse Gail
Chenoweth (a three-year position
funded by the Jewish Fund) and the
dedicated nurses who spend one to
two weeks each summer at Camp
Maas in Ortonville are known for
being "the moms and dads away from
home" for countless campers and staff.
"I am proud to be a part of this
wonderful agency and generous, car-
ing community whose mission is to
provide every Jewish child with an
enriching Jewish camping experience:'
Blumberg said. "I am truly blessed to
be in an environment that has allowed
and encouraged me and our thousands
of campers and staff members to be
our best Jewish selves:'
Tamarack will be celebrating
Blumberg's 18th "char summer at
camp by honoring her at Tamarack
Family Fun Day at Camp Maas on
Blumberg says she feels fortunate
to be supported by nurses who are
not only her professional peers but
also her lifelong friends. Many of
these nurses started their tenure at
Tamarack when their children were
campers and continued after their
children were grown. They feel lucky
to be a doing what they love in a fun
camp environment where they can be
like campers again.
"Camp wouldn't be camp without
Roberta: said Kathi Moss, a Tamarack
nurse for 25 years. "Her ability to
oversee the health and well-being of
the entire Tamarack community is
astounding. She does it is seamlessly
and makes it look effortless. Her smile,
warmth and wonderful sense of humor
make everyone feel at ease in her pres-
"Roberta and I have a passion for
helping others that blossomed into a
lifelong friendship. She has enriched
my life in countless ways, and I am
honored to be her friend:'
The motto of Tamarack nurses is "a
warm hug, loving smile and caring ear
is sometimes just what camper's need.
Of course, a cold Popsicle doesn't hurt
Other longtime nurses include
Cathy Herman, 21 years; Liz Kirshner,
18 years; Julie Nitzkin, 14 years; and
Renee Unger, 12 years.
