Hi, I am Alicia McGee, Co-Director of Camp JORI. I grew up in New Jersey, attended Ithaca College and have lived in Massachusetts since attending Wheelock College in 2005 when I obtained my M.S.W. (master of social work). I worked at Girls Inc. of Lynn as a teen prevention counselor before working at Temple Isaiah in Lexington, MA. I worked at Temple Isaiah for over 10 years in a variety of roles but most recently as the Director of Tichon Isaiah (8th-12th grade high school program) as well as coordinator or 4th-6th grade. In that time, I obtained my master in education at Cambridge College.
Throughout my youth and teen years, I love and have attended day and overnight camps as well as going on a teen tour. Throughout this experience I have worked as a camp counselor which lead me on the path to social work and temple engagement. I love summer camp because it’s a place where we can truly be ourselves, take healthy risks and learn what it means to be part of a community. I am so grateful to have an opportunity to work at Camp JORI and can’t wait to meet our campers in just a few months!!!
My husband Casey along with our 3 children, Logan (age 12), Gavin (age 10) and Cooper (age 3) live in Burlington, MA. We love hitting the beach and exploring new places. In addition, we share a love for New England sports and try to find time to watch our beloved sports teams!
Please feel free to reach out at Alicia@campjori.com as I welcome the opportunity to meet our wonderful, strong camp community.
