Recent Developments

Posted by jhsadmin

Jewish summer camps have continued to adapt and respond to recent developments. In 1995, a report found that attending summer camp increased the chances of continued involvement in the Jewish community later in life. This has lead organizations such as the Grinspoon Foundation and the Foundation for Jewish Camping to provide financial support to camps across North America.

However, with the emergence of special-interest camps that focus on activities like soccer, music, or theatre, Jewish summer camps have seen a decline in attendance. This has left some Jewish camps thinking about how to make their programs more competitive.
