Foundation for Jewish Camp

Site includes a search engine to help you find the right camp for your child, as well as information about scholarships and grants and professional development.

The Foundation for Jewish Camp aspires to elevate the field of Jewish camp, conferring proper recognition and granting appropriate support to expand its impact across our community, so that camp can be a critical element of every Jewish young person’s education.

Our strategy
As we look toward the future, we support our mission and vision with four areas of focus:

Camper Acquisition: Grow Enrollment
Program Excellence: Foster Retention
Leadership Development: Ensure a Strong Future
Community Engagement: Achieve Sustainability
We have outlined new priorities to support these areas of focus:

Addressing affordability: FJC is engaged in Project SABABA, a feasibility study measuring the interest in and viability of a more accessible camp model.
Fostering connections: Creating avenues for camps to link with schools, communities, and synagogues to share educational best practices and drive enrollment growth.
Increasing Awareness: Promoting Jewish camp through a national ad campaign and increase/improve the use of technology across the field.
Creating innovative programming: Cutting-edge educational development to enhance Jewish, Israel, and general program content.
