Director of Year-round Programs and Associate Director Camp JCA Shalom
Allison came to Camp JCA Shalom from Toronto, Canada in 1999 after a close friend told her about “this camp in Malibu she just HAD to check out”. She began her camping career as the Habonim Unit Head and Camp Teva Program Director and then spent her next few summers as the Head Counselor. In 2007, Allison was thrilled to return to JCA full time as the Assistant Camp Director. After a number of years traveling and living abroad, Allison studied social work at Ryerson University in Toronto while also working as a children’s entertainer and exotic animal educator, leading interactive and educational programs for kids featuring live animals. Now, at camp, there is no place she’d rather be, and is so grateful that she made the decision to ‘check out’ Camp JCA Shalom.
