The Summer Essay Contest

All those involved in this special program were deeply affected by the tragedies they uncovered and inspired by the heroism exhibited by their fore bearers.

During the summer months campers at camps all over the Catskill region and beyond partake in an exciting essay writing contest. Campers are encouraged by Project Mesorah to explore their Grandparent’s experiences in Europe and in the concentration camps. The campers document their findings in essay form. All those involved in this special program were deeply affected by the tragedies they uncovered and inspired by the heroism exhibited by their fore bearers. Project Mesorah stores the essays in it’s archives to allow for future access.
