Professional Development

An investment in the talented camp professionals who make Jewish camp possible is an investment in the enriching camp experiences that FJC strives to create.

The best camp professionals are constantly striving to improve, never being complacent with their skill set—talented as they may be. FJC offers a wide range of trainings and seminars throughout the year for full-time camp professionals. See our events for additional upcoming opportunities.

Yitro Leadership Program

The Yitro Leadership Program is a strategic investment in a diverse network of high-potential, full-time, year-round professionals in middle manager roles at Jewish overnight camps. Designed to cultivate a dynamic cohort experience, the Yitro Leadership Program equips fellows with the skills, confidence, and connections necessary to thrive in their roles and beyond.

The Yitro Leadership Program ensures that camp professionals do not navigate their leadership journey alone. To date, FJC has facilitated four cohorts of the Yitro Leadership Program, graduating 75 alumni who have made significant impact on the Jewish camp field and the broader Jewish community.

FJC is pleased to announce the launch of two upcoming Yitro Leadership Program cohorts:

  • Cohort V: May 2024–February 2026 (Applications are now closed.)
  • Cohort VI: May 2025–February 2027
