Camp Census

Data is uniquely important to building the field of Jewish camp. This Census collects data that is aggregated, analyzed, and shared back through reports that identify trends and learnings and give us better leverage to advocate for the field.


The re-opening of Jewish camps in Summer 2021 marked the beginning of a return to normalcy – just when kids needed it the most. But Summer 2021 was complex, requiring camp professionals to adapt, and then re-adapt as they planned and ran camp amid a pandemic. We salute their dedication, creativity, and resilience – illustrated by the strength of the abundant data and stories contained in Foundation for Jewish Camp’s 2021 Jewish Camp Census Report – which will guide the way to ensure continued recovery and growth as we prepare for Summer 2022 and beyond.

Please share and discuss these findings with your staff, stakeholders, and partners. And, we would love to hear how you are utilizing the findings from this report. Feel free to share that, as well as any questions about the report, with Nila Rosen and Bethany Berger, Director and Manager of Learning and Research, at .
