For a blue-eyed 13-year-old named Yochanan, the lure of sleepaway camp this year is a religious ceremony at summer’s end. Yochanan will have a small bar mitzvah there in August, reading from the Torah in front of his bunkmates for the first time. A second, more formal ceremony will take place in September, in Brooklyn’s Borough Park.
