I love camp! I believe camp is magical and provides children a unique and wonderful space to learn and grow. I hope to bring positivity and kindness to our camp community. While I never went to camp Coleman, I met my husband there while working as a counselor in college and (they are a camp couple!).

This will be my second summer on the Community Care Team at Camp Coleman, where I followed my daughter for our first summer at sleep away camp in 2021. I found a deep sense of Jewish community at Coleman as well as a great love for tie-dye. I look forward to returning to the camp in 2022 and to renewing relationships with both staff and campers.

I am excited to be working at camp this summer to help support our community through a social-emotional and spiritual lens. Our community is vibrant and strong, and our ability to offer personalized care to campers and staff who need a bit more support is one special piece of Coleman that it does to build its Reform Jewish community.
I am the proud mom of three campers this year, and I teach Pilates and how to play Mah Jong. I love to also play guitar and lead song sessions and worship. I grew up as a camper, staff member and song leader at Coleman too!

I am extremely excited to work at Camp Coleman this summer and help support the mental health and wellness needs of the campers, staff, and community. This will be the first time that I’ve been able to work at camp, but I have fabulous memories of my own camp experience and I am so excited to be able to join such an awesome Jewish community! I hope to bring a fresh perspective and energy to the team and I look forward to meeting everyone in just a few short months! I also love staying active-exercising, running, yoga, boot camp, etc

As a mental health provider for 25 years, I am thrilled to bring my expertise and experience to my happy place. I am honored to be chosen to help Camp Coleman provide a safe, happy, loving, and supportive environment for all of its campers, no matter what their unique emotional needs are.
I attended camp beginning in 1980 and all 3 of my children have attended camp. I have had a camper at Camp Coleman every summer since 2006. I have also been on staff as a parent previously. I am so thrilled to be back at camp with 2 of my children this summer.
Kary Lewis, LMSW
I grew up as a Coleman kid, and it had such a huge impact on me that Even in my forties I couldn’t stay away! I’m so delighted to once again be part of this amazing community. I am truly committed to helping make this summer amazing. My goal is to help each and every child find what is unique and special about themselves. I am committed to helping children find what makes their souls shine.
I have eighteen years of working with Hospice as an LMSW. I am excited to work with youth over the Summer. I love hiking and anything outdoors. I have two children who both love Coleman.✌️
Seth Menachem, LMFT Clinical Psychotherapist
I am really excited to be a part of the MESH team at Camp Coleman. I am also sending my kids, Sydney and Asher, to sleepaway camp for their first time and I can’t wait for them to have great experiences like I had when I was a camper at Camp Coleman. My California kids could use a little Georgia mud on their clothing.
I think a support team like this is a really special and unique experience, and I look forward to assisting the staff and campers in whatever way I can.
Jordan Kerben, LMFT, RPT (licensed marriage and family therapist, registered play therapist)
I am so excited to be back at Coleman this summer! I cannot wait to bring the experience I have gained as a therapist with kids and teenagers to the Coleman community. I am excited to support the mental health of campers and staff to enable everyone at camp to have the best summer possible. I spent 7 years as a camper at Coleman and 3 as a counselor, where I met my husband! I currently live in Atlanta, where I work in private practice seeing children and adolescents. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and spending time with my cat and husband.

I’m excited to be back this summer to help meet the mental health needs of any and every camper at Coleman. With the community care team, we’ll be able to help ensure that each camper has the tools and resources they need to embrace and enjoy everything Camp Coleman has to offer. I am a Coleman alumnus, both as a camper for 4 summers and this summer being my 5th year on staff. Currently, I am in graduate school pursuing my Psy. D in Clinical Psychology with the career goal of becoming a child psychologist.
