Genna Singer joined the staff at JCC Manhattan in June 2002, assisting the day camp director during the first summer of camp. Genna grew up attending day camp and overnight camp, and worked as a staff member in overnight camp for 5 years. In September of 2002, Genna became the Director of After School Programs at the JCC, while maintaining an active role in the summer camps as well. In September of 2006, Genna became the Director of Camps. She developed our outdoor camp, the Day Camp @ Pearl River, while also maintaining our programs at the JCC: the Day Camp @ the JCC and Summer Stock Theater Camp. Genna is most excited to watch our camp traditions and amazing programming come alive at Camp Settoga. She is excited to bring the energy and enthusiasm of the JCC Summer Camps to our new home. Genna combines a love of children, a passion for camp, and a desire to help families find their place at the JCC as she plans for the summer. Whether visiting the pool deck on the 6th floor, baking challah on the campfire, or wandering in and out of classrooms on the 2nd floor, Genna marvels as each child finds a new bit of his/herself at the JCC Summer Camps.
