Faces of Camp Pinebrook Feature: Introducing Jake + Hallie of the Be’er Sheva Bears!

Our oldest campers this summer belong to the Be’er Sheva Bears, and they are led by a dynamic duo, counselors Jake and Hallie.  Your children start every day with a warm hug or enthusiastic high five from Jake and Hallie, and they in turn love spending their days doing everything from swim to distributing fruitcicles with their campers.  Here are some fun facts to know about Jake and Hallie!
