Louis Stromberg, MA/MS
Hi, my name is Louis Stromberg and I am the Director of Cedar Lake Camp. I’m so excited to be getting started as the new Director of CLC and becoming a member of the amazing NJY Camps team!
A little bit about me:
I grew up in Buffalo, NY (go Bills) and starting at the age of 7, spent 12 amazing summers at the former residential overnight camp of the JCC of Buffalo, Camp Lakeland. I got my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Arizona State University (go Sun Devils), and realized while I was in school, that my passion was for Jewish overnight summer camp.
After graduating, I moved to Chicago, IL to pursue a Dual Masters Degree with an MA in Jewish Professional Studies with a focus on camping and experiential education as well as an MS in Nonprofit Management from Spertus Institute of Jewish Learning and Leadership. After graduating, I moved to Washington DC and joined B’nai B’rith Perlman Camp as an Assistant Director. After 3 great years at Perlman Camp, I moved back to Chicago to join the JCC of Chicago as an Assistant Director at Camp Chi for 3 years before moving to Montclair, NJ.
I’ve spent every summer of my life away at camp and I couldn’t imagine it any other way. I believe that there’s nothing more impactful in a child’s life as they look to gain friendships, skills and countless memories and nothing more important than excellent child care and quality programming in a Jewish environment.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone this summer!
