"Corey has been invaluable to our camp community," said Senior Director of URJ Eisner and Crane Lake Camps Louis Bordman. "He has helped to create a vibrant and strong board and donor base. He is beloved by our staff, lay members, camper families and alumni who are all grateful for his spirit of kindness."
