Connect With Your #jewishcamp Peers

Mark Gold, Director of JCamp 180

The blizzard of 2013 (aka Nemo), mostly spared our JCamp 180 team. Nemo dumped two feet of snow in Western Massachusetts, but left most of our power intact. Life slowed down a but (not unlike summer camp!) and allowed us to connect with our family and friends.

This month our eNewsletter focuses on connections - outreach through social media to both peers and alumni and friends. We know that utilizing old and new communication channels is crucial for getting the word out about camp. Read on to learn how to connect with your peers supporting Jewish Camp, spread the word about the virtues of #jewishcamp on Twitter, and find out about a recent entry in the world of social media - Vine.

Warm regards,

Mark Gold

Director JCamp 180
