Thanks to your support, Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) is the rising tide that lifts all Jewish camps. We are so proud of how far we have advanced our mission over the past two years as we envision an even brighter future. From enhancing the quality of programming to improving accessibility and providing resources for professional development, FJC’s lay leadership and professional team remain committed to advancing the field of Jewish camp, ensuring that every camper and counselor has a meaningful and transformative experience.
In both the field of Jewish camp and FJC internally, the last two years can be characterized by renewal, innovation, and transition. In this impact report, we highlight some of the incredible achievements we have accomplished together, including our continued efforts to rebuild camper and counselor pipelines and invest in the professional development of seasonal camp staff and full-time professionals.
Looking ahead FJC will reach a significant milestone this year as we mark our 25th anniversary. Over the past quarter-century, thanks to the vision and dedication of FJC’s co-founders, Elisa Spungen Bildner and Rob Bildner, we have seen the field of Jewish camp transform in so many ways. We see tremendous opportunities for more growth and innovation in both day and overnight camps. We are excited to continue working with our partners and stakeholders to build an even more vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable ecosystem of Jewish camps that can provide meaningful experiences and lifelong connections for generations to come.
With your generous support and unwavering commitment, we have been able to make a significant impact on the lives of thousands of young people and their families. Thank you for your partnership and dedication to our shared mission. We hope you’ll be inspired by the stories and impact of our work in the pages of this report.
With much appreciation,
