Yaakov is excited to be returning for his fifth summer in Camp Sports, though he cannot believe how fast the years have flown by. He spends most of the year training for camp by taking occasional, casual strolls back and forth between Queens, NY and Baltimore, MD. No Biggie. And yet by halftime of the first Frisbee game in camp, he is aching in muscles he didn’t even know he had. He has no idea why that might be.
The only thing Yaakov enjoys more than developing a great relationship with NCSYers during camp, is continuing that friendship after camp. Yaakov likes to bond with people through learning, sports, schmoozing, tiddlywinks, going out for ice cream, bowling, board games, knitting, baseball, and more schmoozing,
As dorm counselor, Yaakov is on top of his game to make sure that everyone’s needs are taken care of (aside from his own sleep needs) and that everyone is comfortable (by camp standards, at least).
Yaakov also loves writing short bios of himself in third person. (At least that’s what he told me…)
