Since 1965, Kutz Camp in the Town of Warwick has been the summer home of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), the youth movement of the Union for Reform Judaism.
Next Wednesday, Aug. 31, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce will host an “Endless Summer Business Mixer” on the 85-acre pristine grounds of UJR Kutz Camp at 46 Bowen Road.
Camp Director Melissa Frey is planning the event exclusively for the Chamber of Commerce and friends.
“The Kutz Camp team,” she said, “is excited to welcome the Warwick Valley community to our venue and we have a very special evening in store.”
Event Chair Janine Dethmers suggested guests pack plenty of business cards, wear comfortable shoes and bring their cameras.
“You just might catch a glimpse of the 40-year old snapping turtle named ‘Brutus’ along with other creatures that live on the campus,” she said. “Enjoy great company, complimentary refreshments, and a glass of wine while listening to live music by Ray Longchamp around picturesque Rolyn Lake. Guided tours of the resort-like property will also be offered. And each guest will be eligible to win a variety of raffles and prizes.”
The summer program at Kutz brings together 200 teenagers from around the world each summer to develop leadership skills through a lens of Jewish values.
The camp is located on the former site of the Chock Full O Nuts Coffee Company’s executive retreat center, which was Grossman’s Dude Ranch before that.
Throughout the rest of the year, Kutz is home to Camp AmeriKids of Stamford, Connecticut, as well as youth group weekends, corporate retreats, lifecycle events, weddings, and private gatherings.
Cost for this unique summertime social event is $10 for members and their guests and $20 for non-members.
