Orignially from Givatayim, Israel, Talya recently completed 2 years of service as an Army Recruit Squad Commander and is hoping to pursue a career in youth development. She brings a wealth of experience in lesson planning, leading activities, and working with kids of various ages and backgrounds, including volunteering in an elementary school for at-risk youth and mentoring teenage counselors. Open-minded, empathetic, and growth-oriented with a great sense of humor, Talya has a solid foundation in risk management and awareness, and she has experienced firsthand the #outcomes of patience, persistence, determination, and confidence that result from coaching target shooting. With additional background in arts & crafts, woodworking, theater, and more, she has already started brainstorming fun, new, out-of-the-box ideas to bring to our Riflery program. Passionate about helping girls develop their full potential in a safe, fun, and rewarding environment, Talya is sure to make a widespread positive impact on our camp community this #summer2remember at the range, on cabin row, and beyond! Welcome to the Purple Team, Talya!
“It seems that this camp is not only a camp that cares about campers having a FUN summer, but a camp that puts great effort into helping each girl discover her strengths, know her abilities, and become more self-confident. I’m excited to get to know each camper, to get to know the amazing staff, to learn about other cultures and realities different from what I’m familiar with. I’m super excited to help each camper have a meaningful experience and an unforgettable summer. I’m most excited to see each camper overcome her fears and doubts about her abilities, and become a more confident and powerful person who believes she can achieve anything she wants in life! The leadership skills I can bring to the staff team are patience, listening, balance, and positivity, but above all that and most importantly, belief in myself and my belief that I can achieve every goal I set for myself. I truly believe each and every person can achieve anything in life by believing in her power and never giving up!”
