Ephram Calfun

Lori and Ephram have been at Camp Wekeela for Boys and Girls since 1997. They oversee all of Wekeela’s operations year round from their home in Ridgewood, New Jersey where they look forward to spend every summer with their campers in the beautiful state of Maine. 

Ephram is a graduate of SUNY Oneonta and has his MSW from Yeshiva University. Prior to joining Wekeela as a full time employee, he ran the youth and family programs at both the Clifton and Bergen County, New Jersey JCCs. He was also a school social worker in New York City. Lori is a graduate of Brandeis University and has her MS in Psychology from NYU. She was a middle school teacher and a Guidance Counselor in NYC for 14 years. Camp Wekeela is their life and their passion. 

The Cafluns have three sons: Jonathan (BU ’17), Matthew (BU ’19) and Jared (RHS ’19) who have spent every one of their summers as campers and staff at Wekeela. The entire family is committed to making each summer better than the last and look forward to many camp reunions over the school year.
