Early Childhood Camp Director

Claudine Edelstein

Claudine was born and raised in Brazil and graduated from the University of Miami. For the last 25 years she has lived in Los Angeles, where she recently served on the board of directors of her local synagogue, Adat Ari El, after teaching and coordinating the Mommy & Me program for more than 10 years. She beams with pride at the thought of being many of her friends’ and congregants’ children’s first teacher. She’s also worked as an actress for many years and, more recently, as the director of Gateway Travels, an incentive travel tour operating company. She recently moved back to South Florida and settled in Delray Beach with her husband and two teenage sons. She loves working with children and young families and is beyond thrilled to be starting this next new chapter with such a warm community.
