National Partnerships

JCamp 180 works with other organizations that support the field of Jewish Camping and help advance our mission.

Some national organizations that support Jewish camping:

Association of Independent Jewish Camps  The Association of Independent Jewish Camps provides support and services to organizations that would not otherwise have access to group-based efforts. JCamp 180 works closely with this group as well as the individual camps who are affiliated with it, offering consulting services and matching grants to help them become vibrant, self-sustaining organizations. http://www.aijcamps.org

Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) – The Foundation for Jewish Camp, like JCamp 180, supports nonprofit Jewish summer camps throughout North America.  Focusing their support on camp programming and staff development, the FJC offers programs such as ELI, Cornerstone, and Yitro. The Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s PJ Goes to Camp program is an operational partner of FJC’s One Happy Camper program, providing incentive grants for campers not served by a community based program who attend a participating nonprofit Jewish overnight camp for the first time. Through their complementary efforts, JCamp 180 and the FJC work to ensure the vitality and growth of nonprofit Jewish summer camps. www.jewishcamp.org
