HELLO! WE ARE
a place where children are proud to be who they are
We strive to provide an environment where all children can come as they are and thrive.
We chose the name Izza because it means pride in Arabic and every year during camp, we strive to instill pride in three ways:
pride in the quality of the camp
pride in training the next generation of young leaders
pride in our campers to feel comfortable and confident in who they are
Since 2008, Camp Izza has provided a premier summer camp experience for children in Orange County.
Camp Izza has been accredited by the American Camp Association for over a decade; evidence of our commitment to excellence.
MEET OUR DIRECTORS
we love camp
Jonna Powell, Camp Director
With over 20 years of experience as a former Camp Director at Fairmont Poly Carp Catholic School, Jonna joined Camp Izza in 2018. Her extensive experience and love of children make her an asset to Camp Izza. She has a degree in Children Development from Fullerton College and loves summertime because it means camp is coming. She believes camp is about making friends, trying new activities, playing games, having fun, smiling, laughing, and making lasting memories!
Dr. Omar Ezzeldine, Executive Director
With over 25 years of education experience working as a teacher, principal, and administrator, Omar believes summer camp is the best time for children to grow and connect with others beyond the classroom. His life-long dream was to create a camp based on his years of camp experience that would be fun and engaging for children. He believes camp is designed for a wide range of interests and welcomes all campers to explore their interests in a safe and nurturing environment.
