Camp Staff


Lauren Paniccia - Co-
Camp Director 908-725-6994 x264

I started working at Camp Ruach as the Transportation Coordinator 9 summers ago. I quickly realized I wanted to get more involved. After 2 years I became the Assistant Camp Director and now I am thrilled to be Co-Camp Director. I spend my year planning a summer that will make your children go WOW! My children, like I, love camp and can't imagine spending our summers anywhere but Camp Ruach! It is our "home for the summer".


Stacey Herman - Co-Camp Director 908-725-6994 x223

I have worked for the past 8 years in camp as a unit head and at the JCC in various other roles during the year, running Family /Judaic Programming and PJ Library. I have my masters in Special Education and taught for many years in public school and at our JCC Preschool. Summer is my favorite time of year and Camp Ruach is my favorite place to be. I look forward to this new adventure in my life as Co-Camp Director and continuing to make Camp Ruach my home for the summer.
