Directors and Founders of Camp Al Haderech
Sixteen years ago Rabbi Michael and Malkie Merrill founded Camp Al Haderech to create a camp with a Torah environment, that also provided diverse programming, creating a wonderful experience in camp each day. Along the way they also started the Al Haderech Tots (now in its thirteenth season) as well as the Al Haderech Juniors Program (now in its seventh season). As hands on directors they are available at all times for the children, staff, and parents. Rabbi Merrill goes on all the overnights and supervises the camp learning program. Malkie Merrill serves as the Aquatics Director and directly oversees the Tots program. They can be reached at all hours of the day and often late at night to ensure your child has a great camp experience.
For the last 14 years Rabbi Merrill has been the Director of Student Activities and teaches at the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County (HANC).
Malkie Merrill as been teaching computers at Bais Yaakov of Queens for the last 16 years. She is also an active member of numerous committees at the Young Israel of West Hempstead.
The Merrills and their children love spending their summers at Camp Al Haderech.
