Board-2-Board Camp Exchange Program

The Board-2-Board Exchange Program subsidizes exchanges between board members of diverse camps.  This JCamp 180 program is designed to encourage the members of overnight or day camp boards (committees) to visit another camp while camp is in session. The program's goals are to promote board members’ learning about other camps, sharing experiences, best practices and lessons gained in their volunteer camp journeys, and strengthening their personal and professional camping networks. 

Participation in the 2019 program is limited.  Camps interested in applying must have the endorsement of their JCamp 180 mentor prior to submitting an application.   This JCamp 180 program has been created to promote new connections between Board members and camps.  It will not fund programs where Board members of camps with common affiliations convene.  The program reimburses participants up to $2,000 per person (maximum $5,000 per camp) for approved travel costs incurred in this Board-2-Board exchange program.  Only board members of JCamp 180 affiliated camps are eligible for reimbursement through this program.  Reimbursement payments are made to the camp, and not the individual traveler.

Camps interested in applying should review the program guidelines for the program reimbursement policy because all costs may not be reimbursed.  

A full description of the Board2Board exchange program can be found in the program guidelines.

Camps interested in participating should complete and submit a program application prior to May 31, 2019.
