Evaluation of FJC Ruderman/Alexander inclusion Initiative
A formative three year evaluation was undertaken to take a closer look at the six camps comprising the Ruderman/Alexander Inclusion Initiative. This comprehensive evaluation assesses the processes currently used to create, implement, and sustain the inclusive Jewish camp experience in overnight camp. Results from Summer 2015, and this 3-year longitudinal evaluation, will help identify best practices at administrative, staff, programmatic, and camper-parent levels that will result in inclusive and sustainable camp practices. Additionally, shortfalls and obstacles that are interfering with the full inclusion of campers with disabilities have begun to be identified.
