Roni first came to Camp Shomria in 2009 when she was just 10 years old. Since then, she has grown up every summer and throughout the year in this movement that holds a special place in her heart. Roni has fulfilled roles like Rosh Ken, madricha, and Rosh Chinuch. She spent the last 5 years living in Israel in various kibbutzim in the north and volunteering in the IDF as a Social Work Officer, where she got to meet and help different populations within Israel. She is passionate about returning to Camp in this special role for her to make a difference in a new way she hasn’t yet experienced. It warms my heart to return to the place that shaped me to be who I am today. I am excited to work with the hadracha, campers, parents, and our whole beautiful moshava community!
Assaf joined Camp Shomria & Hashomer Hatzair in 2021. Assaf is trained as a teacher and informal education guide; in the last 4 years he worked as a high school teacher leading trips for students all around Israel and teaching them about Zionism, Judaism and the land of Israel.

I'm Lili and this is my 13th summer at Camp Shomria (not including covid)! I am a Sophomore Dance major at UMass Amherst. My favorite mosh memory is when my kvutza's ceremony got rained out so we went to the bathroom and took our oaths in the bathroom. I'm so excited to get to be together again this summer!! Community and building community is the thing I have always loved the most about Mosh so I am excited to be back in the mosh vibe cultivating that type of community again!
Randy is excited to be part of the Hashomer Hatzair/Shomria team. He has almost 30 years of development experience, which he credits to his love of camping. He recognizes the importance camp has in building very capable individuals. His wife and children also love camp.
