Leah Boonin's first job was as a Jewish day camp counselor, and since then, she has amassed 22 years of experience in Jewish camping and education. In 2010, Leah was awarded the Grinspoon Steinhart Award for Excellence in Jewish Education, she is a recipient of the Chidush Educator's Award, and she has taught and led services at Har HaShem for 15 years. Along with Caroline Saliman, Leah co-founded Keitanat Har HaShem (KHHS) and has co-directed camp for the past seven years.
Leah has led summer programs in Israel, Minnesota, and for the Boulder Valley School District. She is early childhood director-qualified and teaches at the Boulder Jewish Community Center Preschool. Her education includes a BA from Brandeis University and a masters degree from CU.
Co-directing camp is an ideal match for Leah's professional strengths and personal joys, made even better by getting to co-direct with Caroline.
