Please Join us in Welcoming Our Newest Affiliated Camps

We are pleased to announce four new camps becoming affiliated with JCamp 180. Like all of our affiliated camps, these new camps now have access to a JCamp 180 mentor to help them leverage our matching grant programs with improvements in governance, strategic planning, and fundraising. Staff and board members are now also eligible to apply for our various professional development programs.

Please join us in welcoming our newest affiliated camps:

  • Camp Chi - the overnight summer camp of the Chicago JCC.  Although JCamp 180 has been working with the Chicago JCC day camps for the past three years, this is our first cooperative work with their overnight camp program.
  • Emma Kaufmann Camp - the overnight summer camp of the JCC of Pittsburgh. 
  • In the City Camp - day camp with two locations in Atlanta, GA.
  • URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy - one of a long line of URJ camps affiliated with JCamp 180, Sci-Tech Academy is part of the second cohort of Jim Joseph Foundation sponsored incubator camps, specifically targeting children looking for a specialized camp experience focused on robotics, video game design, astronomy, and digitlal film production.
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.
