Summer camp has played a big role in fostering Jewish identity for generations. Jewish overnight (or sleepaway) camps and day camps are responsible for some of our best stories, experiences and friendships. We want you to tell those stories and share what Jewish summer camp has meant to you for our next Oy!Chicago blog series, “This One Time … At Jewish Summer Camp …”
We want to publish your stories, your insights or whatever is on your mind about Jewish summer camp the week of July 7-11. Persons of all levels of writing experience are welcome to pitch ideas!
Here’s how: write a paragraph describing what your piece would be about and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, June 27. The only requirement is that the post should in some way relate to the theme, and that you are 21 or older. We will review your submission and let you know if we are interested in running in your piece in full on Oy!Chicago the week of the blog series.
Please note that Oy!Chicago is a volunteer-run website, so we are unable to pay for published submissions at this time. If you have any questions, email them to email@example.com
