Annual Conference

Our annual conference is designed to meet the needs of professional staff and lay leaders of our affiliated Jewish camps and partner organizations across North America.

Engage Today, Tomorrow, Forever!

The 2023 JCamp 180 conference took place at the newly renovated Marriott Springfield Downtown in Springfield, MA October 22-24, 2023!

Jewish camps excel at designing deeply engaging camp experiences for their camp communities from year to year. Whether this experience is focused on campers, counselors, alumni, lay leaders, donors, or other volunteers, this community represents a thread that connects us all and is the heartbeat of Jewish sustainability and purpose.

Our 2023 JCamp 180 conference at the Marriott Springfield Downtown explored these community connections in a holistic way, examining the arc of their journeys, as well as focusing on smaller, but critical, moments of engagement. Together, we ignited new ideas, mapped constituent needs, and ultimately strengthened our engagement journeys of our camps’ most important communities - Today, Tomorrow, and Forever.

Through facilitated activities and experiential exercises and top-level learning, together camps built aspirational arcs that turn transactions into relationships and interactions into mutually purposeful engagements to last a lifetime.
