Mitch Morgan – Executive Director
Mitch is a dynamic leader and came to Pinemere Camp with over 20 summers of Jewish overnight camp experience! Originally from St. Louis, MO, he is a graduate of the University of Missouri, Columbia (MIZZOU). Mitch grew up at Camp Sabra of the St. Louis JCC, where he rose to the position of Assistant Director, and was most recently Director of Camp Kingswood of the Boston JCC. Mitch left Jewish camping for a brief time to enter the business world as a Senior Specialist of leadership, management, and sales strategy. However, his passion for camp consumed him and he eventually traded in his suit and tie for shorts and flip flops. He is a community builder, program innovator, creative Jewish educator, lover of music and the outdoors, and a sports enthusiast. Mitch believes in the amazing power of Jewish overnight camp and its ability to foster Jewish identity and create the perfect setting for growth and development.
Mitch has participated in the Yitro Fellowship in partnership with the Foundation for Jewish Camp, the Chazon Fellowship through the iCenter, and recently completed the Lekhu Lakhem Fellowship in partnership with the JCC Association and Foundation for Jewish Camp.
