Camp Leadership

Our Director

Judi Simmons has been with Camp Menorah for 31 years.  She has been the director for the past 30 years.  She sees Camp Menorah as a place where every child belongs, a place where individuality and self-esteem can grow in a safe, nurturing environment.  With campers from over 30 cities and towns from Boston’s Metro North and North Shore area, Judi brings children together from different backgrounds to form a family and develop skills of sportsmanship and leadership.

During the school year, Judi works for the Lynn public school system as the head speech pathologist.  She has a master’s degree in education from Boston University.
