William Hirshberg Award

The William Hirshberg Educational Scholarship Award is given to campers and staff who most embody the spirit and practice of Bill Hirshberg.

Bill was known for his leadership skills, kindness, generosity and cooperative nature. He had a special gift of making people feel good about themselves. Recipients of the award have made a positive impact on campers and the overall camp community, by creating a spirit of support and goodwill towards others.

The educational scholarship is intended to be used by the recipients to further develop their potential. We thank the Hirshberg family for generously funding this important award.
