Introducing Our 2014 Staff: L.Mat

LCM Headshot - smallFrom Toronto, Ontario, my name is Lauren Caplan-Matlow (L.Mat). I am currently studying Early Childhood Education. In my spare time I enjoy cardio-funk dancing, baking, kickboxing and going to movies.

Ever since I was a young child, I absolutely loved going to a Jewish sleepover camp in northern Ontario. It was because of this love affair that I spent 12 years there, first as a camper, then a counselor and a senior counselor. After so many years at one camp, I decided that I wanted to have a new experience at a different Jewish camp. I was so lucky to hear about Camp Mountain Chai, and the next thing I knew, I was off to California for the summer.

I have spent the past three summers at Camp Mountain Chai as a senior counselor in Netzarim, Amirim, and Atid. This summer I will be the Netzarim Programmer and Assistant Unit Leader. I cannot be more excited to share my great programming ideas with our 5th and 6th grade campers! I am looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones and having an incredible summer with all of you!
