Rachel's path to 6 Points
Born and raised in Austin, TX, Rachel grew up rushing back and forth between activities at Congregation Beth Israel and practices for gymnastics, volleyball, basketball, and softball. Although she made an exception for NFTY in Israel, her competitive schedule kept her busy during the summers. This gave rise to her current passion for providing serious Jewish athletes the opportunity to train at a high level while also experiencing the magic of Jewish summer camp.
After four years as the starting setter at Dripping Springs High School, Rachel played libero and defensive specialist at Southwestern University where she also served as the Assistant Coach for the 2008-2009 season. Rachel received her Bachelors in International Studies and went on to earn a double-Masters in Jewish Nonprofit Management and Public Administration from HUC’s Zelikow School and the University of Southern California, respectively.
Rachel caught the camp bug in 2003 as a madricha (counselor) at URJ Camp Swig where she experienced her first-ever summer at camp. She spent the following three summers at Camp Newman as a Rosh (Unit Head) and then as the Avodah Director. After college and prior to moving to LA for graduate school, Rachel worked at Camp Young Judaea-TX as the Head of Specialists and Area Supervisor for year-round programming where she helped pilot a specialty soccer camp.
Rachel met her husband, Rich, at Camp Swig and their son Jack is on the path to being a 6ixer already!

Aimee's path to 6 Points
Aimee was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She spent the majority of her life looking forward to her amazing, transformative summers spent at Camp Hess Kramer where she spent 8 years as a camper and 1 year as staff. She went on to attend American University (Go Eagles!) where she studied Communications and Jewish Studies and loved living in DC. After graduation, she headed back to Los Angeles to marry Josh Sesar whom she met at Camp! Together they have two daughters, Emma and Chloe, who are thankfully both obsessed with summer camp.
During the last 20 years, Aimee has become very involved in Camp Harmony which is a non-profit that provides an overnight camping experience twice a year for underprivileged children around Los Angeles. She worked in the office for three years and then continued her involvement by working on fundraising events and during camp sessions. She is quite the tie-dye aficionado!
Aimee went back to work full time at AJC (American Jewish Committee) in Development in April 2013. She spent 5 years engaging and interacting with donors and working on many fundraising events. Jewish camping was always in her heart and on her mind, so, she was so excited to revisit her roots and jump right into the job at 6 Points in 2018.
