Thank you to FJC from the bottom of my heart.  I have to say that this conference left me inspired and full of gratitude to the camping field that is not only keeping children in the Jewish community, but will also be the one to take this community forward!

Leaders Assembly 2016

Our plenaries inspired us to empower our employees and colleagues, be more intentional about how we show appreciation for our staff and families, create measurable methods of professional development for our emerging leaders, and challenge ourselves to welcome and engage everyone in our community.  We broadened our horizons, picked up new ideas, and honed our skills in over 70 breakout sessions, found 40 partners to collaborate with in the Shuk, and strengthened the connections between our camps, communities, and each other.

As this is our 18th anniversary year, we took time to celebrate collaboration among camps, working together as a field, and accomplishments over the past 18 years.  We also acknowledged and thanked those who make it all possible – the many funders who have invested significantly in Jewish camps all over North America and in FJC, the community partners who have embraced camping to engage their community, and the long-serving camp professionals who have dedicated their careers to nurture our children.
