Beber Camp, a non-profit Jewish overnight camp in Mukwonago, has contracted with Friendship Bakery to provide all challah each week during Summer 2021.
In the past, the camp baked its own challah, but because of the pandemic and a change in staffing, the camp decided to explore using a bakery to supply its challah, according to Trudy Sirkis, spokeswoman for Beber Camp.
“We were so impressed with what Friendship Bakery does, and because we have an inclusion program at Beber Camp for campers with special needs, we thought it was a perfect fit,” Sirkis said. “While Friendship Bakery was a little beyond our original budget plans, we had a generous donor sponsor purchasing the challahs from Friendship Bakery and so we are so excited to announce that this is happening for summer 2021.”
The Beber Camp inclusion program includes workers who have aged out of the typical camper program. Friendship Bakery is a Chabad of Wisconsin organization that trains and employs people with special needs.
