The Truth About Jewish Summer Camps

I went to summer camp for a long time (Alonim 2002, what what?…okay that was the most excited I’ve ever been about my edah since…ever). From the time I was 10 until I was 22, I spent every single one of my summers in Northern Ontario, and I don’t regret a second of it.

Amir Blumenfeld, a writer and comedian at CollegeHumor.com (Jake & Amir/Prank Wars) and the co-host of MTV’s Pranked, on the other hand, did not go to Jewish sleep away camp. And he regrets every minute of it. While his views on what he thinks Jewish summer camp actually is like are a little warped (I can assure you my camp prays numerous times a day, even when some of the campers don’t want to), it doesn’t mean that all us camp loving people shouldn’t go out of our way to feel bad for the guy.

In our newest installment from our ongoing comedy series, Amir tells us about how math camp differs from Jewish camp and how he feels like he missed out on an amazing teenage experience.
