Foundation for Jewish Camp, Inc. Specialty Camps Incubator

FJC logoIn 2008, with a grant from the Jim Joseph Foundation, the Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) launched the Specialty Camps Incubator  to support the creation and development of five new Jewish specialty camps. A key purpose of establishing the new specialty camps was to attract Jewish teens who were not attending other Jewish camps.

In 2009, the Jim Joseph Foundation engaged Informing Change (formerly called BTW informing change) to design and implement a multi-year evaluation of the Incubator, assessing whether and how the Incubator was achieving its intended outcomes. This report, New Jewish Specialty Camps: From Idea to Reality, presents key findings from the evaluation along with recommendations based on lessons learned for key stakeholders and others in the field.
