The recent rollout of the Covid-19 vaccines is certainly great news! We are looking forward to the thousands of stories of children growing at #jewishcamp this summer.
But there is still uncertainty about camps’ ability to open this summer in some parts of the country. State and local rules COULD prevent camps from creating lifelong memories in-person.
So, what can YOU do?
Get involved in state-wide efforts in your own state and locality. There is likely advocacy already happening in your area – learn who is involved and how your staff and lay leaders can help.
The American Camp Association (ACA) has several resources to help you get started with your advocacy work:
You can also find all these resources (and more) on the ACA Public Policy page
BONUS: The ACA is offering free memberships
right now during Covid-19. This will allow your team to access ALL the helpful resources they provide.
Who we are: JCamp 180 is a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF). Our goal is to significantly enhance the long-term effectiveness of nonprofit Jewish camps in North America. To meet this goal, we provide affiliated Jewish camps with consulting services, annual conferences, shared resources, professional development, and matching grant opportunities.
