Foundation for Jewish Camp JWest Campership Program

From 2008 - 2011, the JWest Campership program worked to engage Jewish children in a first-time Jewish summer camp experience at 23 camps across 13 western U.S. states.

The program was evaluated annually and demonstrated positive results, as a total of 3,309 first-time 6th - 8th grade campers were enrolled in camp -- 720 in 2008, 653 in 2009, 1047 in 2010 and 889 in 2011. The program also focused on retaining campers, broadening the ethnic and socio-economic camper profile, and building Jewish identity. The evaluations present findings in those areas from 2009 and 2011.
