In Danial’s own words, “"Leah came home from camp and could not stop talking about how special and meaningful Camp Kaylie is. She had such a great time there meeting new people and enjoying a camp experience she hadn't had before. The programs that Rabbi Hochbaum and the staff set up were phenomenal. She can't wait to go back next summer. Hearing her talk to her sisters and friends in school about Camp Kaylie makes me proud to be a member on their Board of Directors." Danial lives with his family in Long Island.
