He has spent many summers directing, organizing, and running camps for children of all ages, including camps such as Al Haderech, B’Yachad, and Mogen Avraham. Nissan also runs Youth and Teen programming for the Jewish Heritage Center Yom Tov retreats.
He has many years of experience in developing fun and engaging youth programs for children.

Nissan is an alumni of Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim and a graduate of Touro University Worldwide where he earned a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.
