Renee and Shoshana

    Hi fellow campers! It's so great to have found this website. My family spent 5 years at Paradise Park and I went to Camp Shoshana in 1963 and 1965-67. I couldn't attend in '64 - I was 14, too old to be a camper and not old enough to be a CIT so I was sent to Camp Blueberry that year. But I have so many wonderful memories of Shoshana. No one else has ever heard of the game newcomb. I remember Irv Kintisch threatening to throw ice cubes in the pool if we kept complaining it was too cold to stay in. He taught me more than anyone about swimming and safety. I loved reading the old songs - they reminded me of the flagpole ceremonies and bus trips to bowling, square dances at Bear Mountain - and being in the Teen group, the bus driver would turn off the lights on the way back to give us privacy at the back of the bus. Maybe he wanted to stop the singing. I was at the reunion in 1978 and saw many of the old counsellors - I sure hope they find the website too.
I live in a small New Hampshire town, I do secretarial work for a large Health Care company, and raise my 10 yr. old step-son. I have two grown "kids," Zvi and Shoshana, and five grandchildren. Unfortunately my son and all the grandkids live in Israel, but my daughter lives near by. The picture on this page is me and Shani (as I call her) taken July 4th of this year. If you remember me, keep our secret that I'm not really a natural blonde.
I intend to visit the website often and I sure hope to hear from people!
God Bless, Renee
