This past year, the Foundation for Jewish Camp has been able to truly advance the field of Jewish camp and expand its impact on our community – by providing campers with the opportunity to create Jewish memories for a lifetime and to build the necessary skills to become our future Jewish leaders.  We are proud that in 2014 77,000+ campers and 11.000+ college-aged counselors benefited from the magic of Jewish camp.  Cumulatively, over the past 5 years, we have helped provide over 420,000 overnight camp experiences, introducing over 180,000 new campers to joyous Jewish summer experiences.

SEE OUR IMPACT AND HOW WE CONTINUE TO REACH A NEW GENERATION OF JEWISH CAMPERS.
   

 
Fifteen years ago, the Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) was created to ensure that more kids benefit from the unparalleled experience of Jewish camp.  In summer 2013, Jewish camp was home to more than 75,000 campers, a 3% increase from 2012.  The joyous Judaism that camp inspires helps break down the barriers and silos which separate us from one another, providing a powerful example for the entire Jewish community. Similarly, through the multiple approaches we have taken to making Jewish camp more accessible and appealing, FJC has brought together disparate camping entities to create a field that now stands at the apex of the Jewish communal agenda.  As we reach the halfway point in our five-year Strategic Plan, we are accessing our achivements and adapting our goals, focusing on three major initiatives: inclusion, affordability, and innovation.
