Why Should You Register for the 2017 JCamp 180 Annual Conference?

Registration for the 2017 JCamp 180 Conference is now open!

So...why should you register for #JCampConf this year?

1) The Basketball Hall of Fame!

Our Monday dinner will be at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. You and your fellow attendees will have free time to network and enjoy the exhibits in a relaxed atmosphere. A few camps will even have a chance to shoot free throws for donations to their camp (more on that below). Make sure you stay through Monday night to take advantage of this special opportunity to visit the Hall of Fame!

2) A chance to win $ for your camp...

Board members who register by September 15th 18th (note: early registration has been extended to Monday, September 18th) will have their camp entered into a raffle for a chance to shoot free throws for donations to camp at the Hall of Fame.

3) ...or for you!

If you register by September 15th 18th (note: early registration has been extended to Monday, September 18th) you will be eligible to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card for yourself.

4) More time for sessions and networking.

We've extended the conference by a day to provide more learning opportunities and allow for more networking time. We'll have speakers, workshops, and invitation-only training programs on Tuesday, October 24, so please make your travel plans accordingly. And we've set aside a block of time within the conference for Grab and Gab sessions - lightly structured time at lunch that will allow you to connect with your peers on specific topics.

5) or your camp might win some $ if you register early

Register early...and practice your free throws.

6) The leaves.

The conference will be held earlier in the year (from October 22-24, 2017) in Springfield, MA to allow attendees to enjoy the New England Fall foliage.

We look forward to welcoming you and more than 400 other Jewish Camp leaders to the Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel in October this year.
