Meet the Staff

Scott Miller

As founder and director of Camp Topeinu, Scott takes pride in the steady growth the camp has seen since its inaugural summer in 2008. He attributes the success on keeping the program fresh by continually adding creative and exciting programs each summer along with the satisfied parent body (and of course their happy children). Scott brings with him over 20 years of experience working with Jewish children of all ages both in school, camp and youth group environments. He also serves as the Executive Director of Yeshiva Ketana of Manhattan (an affiliate of Camp Topeinu) since 2001. Scott brings passion, energy and vision to all aspects of Camp Topeinu and is available to answer any question you may have regarding any aspect of the camp.

Gila Price
Head Counselor

Gila Price, better known as “Morah Gila”, will continue in her role as head Counselor this summer. For many years Morah Gila was one of our most popular counselors both amongst the campers and parents before she was promoted to head Counselor. Gila comes with 12 years of teaching experience and many years of coordinating After School Programs and Shabbos Groups for preschool children. Gila is looking forward to continuing the warm, caring and friendly atmosphere that the camp has always shown towards their campers, parents and staff alike. Morah Gila looks forward to another great summer!

Counselors/Junior Counselors

Each group is comprised of one counselor who brings her expertise as an educator during the school year with a degree in early childhood or a related field. Each counselor is teamed up with capable junior counselors who have a love for children and experience working with them. Many of our counselors have been with us for years. In addition, some of our groups are led by two co-counselors who work together to ensure your child has a wonderful summer. All of our counselors and junior counselors are warm and filled with enthusiasm and energy. They care for their campers and make sure each camper is having fun and making friends! Our staff is an experienced team, who truly care about the safety, growth, and happiness of each camper.
