The future is bright for Jewish day camp

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Foundation for Jewish Camping Leaders Assembly.

The conference brought together more than 700 leaders from Jewish camps across the US and Canada for three days of discussions aimed at making our great Jewish camps even better.   Discussion topics ranged from strategies to keep camp affordable to staff development and innovative approaches to Jewish programming.   All of the sessions centered on a statistic we’ve known for a long time:  Camp is among the most impactful tools we have to ensure a strong Jewish future. 

Here’s the thing though… of the 147 total Jewish camps present at the conference, only 26 Jewish day camps attended. 

Read the article I wrote to explain how, just like overnight camp, Jewish day camp can produce a strong, positive connection to Judaism, the Jewish community, and Israel.

Here are some photos from the conference:
