Project Morry and Camp Echo Lake are in Dr. Laurence Glickman’s DNA.  He rose from Echo Lake camper to CIT Director between 1969 and 1979 and served as the camp doctor for a number of years.  His sons, Jonathan and Matthew, have continued on the tradition, attending Echo Lake and becoming counselors.

Laurence has led a distinguished career in Plastic Surgery in Long Island, New York, where he resides with his wife Judy and their two sons.  After attending McGill University Medical School, where he completed his General Surgery training at the Montreal General Hospital, he went on to train in Plastic Surgery in Long Island, followed by a fellowship in Peripheral Nerve Reconstruction in Toronto.  Since 1991, Laurence has been a member of the Long Island Plastic Surgical group (LIPSG), where he served as President from 2000-2004. LIPSG is recognized as the largest and oldest private Plastic Surgical practice in the country with 22 surgeons and 9 offices.  One of the most rewarding parts of his career has been performing surgical missions in third world countries, as part of LIPSG’s alignment with the non-profit organization, Resurge International.

He was a founding board member of Morry’s Camp, then a summer residential program for about 100 children from under-resourced communities in the tri-state area. He served as a board member for 20 years and was President from 2007-2009. He now serves on the Honorary Board of Project Morry, which now serves over 400 youth a year from 5th grade through high school graduation.  Laurence, Judy, Jonathan and Matthew are proud to believe in the mission and the dream of Project Morry.
