New Playground

The Mildred Goetz Camp Site in Pearl River Gets a New Playground!

On July 25, HKC will be dedicating a beautiful new playground at the Mildred Goetz Camp in Pearl River.  This state-of-the-art playground was built in honor of Ann Kahan, the long-time Assistant Executive Director of Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds.

After 50 years of exemplary service Ann is retiring. Ann has been a vital part of the organization since she began working for us in 1961. Throughout the half-century she has been affiliated with HKC, Ann has been an influential presence for thousands of children. Her warm heart, sharp wit, and unwavering devotion to providing an exhilarating summer experience for children have been an integral part of the success of HKC.

The playground was designed by Raymond Michael, Ltd., using components from one of the world leaders in imaginative commercial playground equipment, Playworld Systems. Paid for through a grant from the Sports for Youth arm of UJA-Federation and donations from HKC board members, the playground is a testament to the career of Ann Kahan.

No matter what, Ann will always be a part of HKC!
