To honor camp staff’s integral role in a successful summer, the Fiterman family created the Kol Hakavod award in 2003. The Kol Hakavod Award honors and recognizes exceptional Herzl Camp Staff. Each year, six staff members are chosen by their peers to receive this honor. Recipients are those who have shown outstanding job performance, exceptional leadership abilities, consistently positive attitude and excellence in their overall contribution to camp.
As you’ll see, we are missing a people from 2004. If you know who received the award in a missing year, email us so we can update the list.
