Travel Reimbursement Policy

Participating camps enrolled in JCamp 180's Camp Legacy Initiative, GIFT, or JTEC (JCamp 180 Training in Effective Communications) programs are eligible for limited reimbursement for approved travel expenses related to in-person training sessions for these programs. This reimbursement is in addition to pre-arranged group meals, airport shuttle services, etc. which may also be provided during your in-person training.

This travel reimbursement program is made possible through the support of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Because our goal is to ensure the fundraising success of nonprofit Jewish Camps, the intent of this policy is to lower the barrier to attending these sessions that the high cost of travel might otherwise impose.

Funds are available as follows:

For Legacy Teams:

Reimbursement will be at a rate of 100% for the first $200 of qualified and approved expenses per person and 50% of all additional qualified and approved expenses, up to a maximum reimbursement of $1200 per team (individuals representing the same camp). Individuals or teams seeking reimbursement beyond these limits must be approved in advance of the travel taking place.

Only camps who are currently participating in the Legacy, GIFT, and/or J-TEC programs are eligible for reimbursements under this policy. For any travel situation that includes multiple training sessions, only one reimbursement per person or per team will be allowed per trip. In such a situation, travel reimbursement will be allocated to one of the programs at the discretion of JCamp 180 director.

For GIFT/ JTEC Participants

Reimbursement will be at a rate of one night's hotel stay per person at the Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel.


Each camp must submit a single reimbursement form by mail within 60 days of the in-person training date(s). The submission must include receipts for all expenses being submitted for reimbursement. Receipts must be originals, and should be clearly marked to indicate which person on your team incurred each expense.

This policy supersedes all previous reimbursement programs of JCamp 180. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your mentor or [email protected]
