Camp Barney Medintz sets open house in Orlando


Camp Barney Medintz, summer resident camp of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta, will present their annual new musical slide production in Orlando on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando, beginning at 7p.m. Jim Mittenthal, camp director, will meet with new and returning families, answer questions pertaining to the 2014 summer camp season, and provide applications for registration.

Camp Barney Medintz is located in the North Georgia Blue Ridge mountains on more than 500 wooded acres surrounding two lakes just 75 miles northeast of Atlanta. According to Mittenthal, the setting facilitates “every imaginable activity,” including water skiing, hydro-tubing, wake boarding, the “Iceberg,” the “Rave” water trampoline, leaping off the “Blob” or soaring down the 180-foot “Hurricane” water slide, “zipping” over 1000 feet across Lake Wendy, Israeli culture, dance, climbing the adjacent Appalachian Trail and a series of high-adventure rock climbing, rappelling and ropes courses, and much more.

Camp Barney, celebrating its 52nd summer season, has created “a unique community that is all about adventure and self discovery, exhilarating activities and exciting events, being in a strong culturally Jewish environment with special friends, all under the supervision of an exceedingly select group of mature, talented, conscientious, loving, and enthusiastic staff,” said Mittenthal.

Inquiries about the 2014 summer season are again far exceeding previous years and each of the two- and four-week sessions is likely to fill to capacity very rapidly. For more information about Camp Barney programs, Family Camps, staff opportunities, or other CBM adventures, please call the Camp Barney Medintz Office in Atlanta at (770) 395-2554 or Stacey Sol, the Camp Barney Medintz Orlando Parent rep, at (321) 460-2802.
