Provides summer camp for youth.
Growing up in Minneapolis, our daughter Cindy went to a number of Jewish camps. These were the summer experiences she looked forward to throughout the year. At camp, she grew up visibly — physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She embraced everything her camping experience gave her. It made her the person she became in adulthood: a caring, thoughtful and loving person, involved in everyone around her. Cindy told us, repeatedly, that she could not think of a better way to spend her summers.
To honor Cindy’s memory, we have established the “Dr. Cindy Bix Camp Scholarship Fund” at the Mandel JCC. By creating this fund, we hope to impact the lives of hundreds of underprivileged children in Palm Beach County by enabling them to attend Camp Shalom at the JCC.
Summer Camp is a unique opportunity for growth increasing independence and self-confidence in our youth and creating a fun and safe atmosphere for kids to be kids. Camp Shalom offers a wide variety of ways for children to thrive and learn new skills, while making memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. We feel that contributing to this incredible program is an appropriate and meaningful way to perpetuate our daughter’s memory.
