Day Camp Professional Leadership Program

The Day Camp Professional Leadership Program, generously funded by UJA-Federation of New York, is to designed to strengthen the operations and enhance the quality of the seven JCC day camps that utilize the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds on Long Island.  The program will provide senior leadership of each camp, individually and in a group setting, access to expert consultations, coaches and mentors who will offer guidance and training in all areas of camp operations, including program design, communications, staff training, and customer service.  Additionally, the program will infuse the day camp programs with appropriate Jewish experiential education – helping directors to create a unique camp spirit that fits their camp’s individual mission and responds to the challenge presented by their highly diverse populations.
