• Staff recruitment

The Fair is organized by Tips on Trips and Camps (, a camp referral service with 40 years in the camping industry. Jenny Wolkowitz, Midwest Consultant for Tips on Trips, (and a member of the Jewish Light Board of Trustees) said, “This annual event gives St. Louis families an opportunity to meet directors from a variety of Jewish summer camp experiences. What better way to make your summer decision.”

Wolkowitz said while summer may seem far away, planning ahead may save families money since many camps offer early bird sign-up discounts.

The first 50 families through the door at the camp fair will receive a bright red Tips on Trips and Camps re-useable grocery bag.
