Jewish camps have always embodied a spirit of collaboration, cooperation, and mutual support, but never more so than over the past two years. Even when camps compete with each other - in the market for families or on rival basketball teams - we marvel at your shared commitment to supporting one another to advance and lift up #JewishCamp.
This year, professionals and volunteers at Jewish camps across North America rose together from last year's immense challenges. You rallied to deliver a summer of joyful Jewish day and overnight camp for thousands of kids and young adults who so desperately needed you this summer.
You also took on fundraising challenges - connecting with donors, sharing your stories, and confidently asking your community to join you in assuring camp remains affordable, accessible, and exceptional.
Please join us for the 2021 JCamp 180 Conference as we Rise Together to acknowledge your boundless energy and astounding resilience. Together we will share new tools, training, and ideas to inspire your camp and the entire field to move forward to even greater successes.
We will Rise Together. We can't wait to see you online.
Thanks to the generosity of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, registration is free for all attendees.
