EKC’s Tush Push

April 16, 2018 to April 26, 2018

What is EKC’s Tush Push?

The amphitheater is the core of Jewish life at Emma Kaufmann Camp. This picturesque outdoor sanctuary is where we hold Shabbat services, our weekly camp talent show and our weekly Jewish education activities.

We’ve made so many improvements over the years to preserve the future of EKC—building the Wolf Aquatics Center, updating the dining hall and adding bathrooms to all the cabins.

Now, we need new benches in the amphitheater as ours are old and rotting, and are so uncomfortable that campers cannot fully engage in services or all-camp activities.

This is our next immediate need. If we act now, we can build these benches in time for Summer 2018.
