Meet Our Leadership Team

Rebecca Diamond
Camp Director

Rebecca is a home grown product of Camp Shalom, where she herself grew up. She always dreamed of making her way “back home” to Shalom, and is ecstatic to be able to dedicate her skills and camp experience to a place so close to her heart. 
 
Rebecca believes in the strong connection between Camp Shalom and the fostering of strong, committed Jewish values. She not only brings a strong belief in the positive power of summer camp, but she has a wealth of camp experience, and outstanding leadership, team building and organizational skills.
 
When she isn’t at camp, Rebecca loves hiking, biking, travelling, cooking and going on adventures with her two boys, Ben and Zach.

Becca Unterman-Somer

Becca is thrilled to be returning to Camp Shalom as the new Camp Associate Director. She has enjoyed a combined 19 years at Jewish overnight camps, 7 of those as staff at Camp Shalom. Becca is passionate about the Jewish camp experience and making sure it is a meaningful time for each and every person who is part of the Camp Shalom Community. Becca makes incredible connections with staff, campers, and parents and her empathy and warmth make her a truly valuable leader.

Sharise Gerson
Office Manager/Camp Administrator

Sharise is excited to join the Camp Shalom team as the new Office Manager/Camp Administrator. With 15 years of office administration under her belt, she is ready to utilize her skills in the camp environment. Sharise spent a decade as a camper and counsellor at a Jewish overnight camp. Her camp years came to an end when she decided to pick up and move to the Canadian Rockies. Since then, Sharise moved back to the GTA and started her own family. She’s been waiting for the day that her kids could attend overnight camp, and that time is finally here. She can’t wait to watch both her children and yours grow and create the camp memories that she holds so dearly. She is counting down the days until the start of camp.
