Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) mental health interns Elisheva and Eve find it important that camp is a place where everyone can thrive. As previous campers and staff members, we know how awesome
camp is, but we also know that even the most amazing place can always be improved. Mental, Emotional,
Social, and Spiritual Health (MESSH) is the notion that everyone has mental health the same way
everyone has physical health. It is important that camp is an inclusive and understanding environment that accommodates everyone’s needs. It is vital that camp settings provide a healthy environment for people with different mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs. This checklist ensures that camp settings are implementing these accommodations. This would help camps become more inclusive towards everyone’s needs. It has the potential to cause a lot of change in how camps view MESSH and hopefully will have a positive impact for all types of campers and staff.
