Bat Mitzvah at Camp Towanda

Bat Mitzvah at Camp Towanda

What could be better than celebrating your Bat Mitzvah at your “favorite place on earth?” Nothing! Just ask Morgan Korn, of New Jersey who celebrated her Bat Mitzvah at Camp Towanda. Morgan’s service took place at Temple Beth Shalom in Livingston, New Jersey on a Saturday in May. The next morning, she and her family were joined by two hundred of their closest family and friends on an overnight “Camp Mitzvah” in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Guests played traditional camp games, hung out in the canteen and their bunks, and had lunch by the lake. At night, Towanda’s dining hall was transformed into a fantastic, fun party space. Before heading to their bunks for the night, guests enjoyed a beautiful campfire!

Morgan’s Mitzvah Project

Morgan raised money for the Teams For Kids Foundation which helps underprivileged New Jersey children participate in recreational sports programs. Morgan is a competitive swimmer, so she chose to raise money to help the Newark YMCA provide swim lessons to those who could not otherwise afford them.
