Foundation For Jewish Camp

Summers at Jewish overnight camp turn Jewish youth into spirited and engaged Jewish adults, laying the groundwork for strong Jewish communities. The Foundation for Jewish Camp aspires to elevate the field of Jewish camp, conferring proper recognition and granting appropriate support to expand its impact across our community, so that camp can be a critical element of every Jewish young person's education.


 

The FJC has partnered with Gift of Life to join the mission of saving lives. Staff at Jewish camps learn about the mitzvah of pikuach nefesh through a program that focuses on becoming a donor. The program addresses both the specifics of being a donor from a practical standpoint as well as from a Judaic perspective. Themes of Jewish Heroes and saving the life of a community are suggested. The goal is that staff become educators and leaders in helping patients worldwide. This can be accomplished in several ways. Running a drive on their college campuses, teaching their campers about what they have done, spreading the word to their home communities and helping raise necessary funds to support the lab processing costs. Once campers learn they then can share the information with their parents and their hometown communities and ultimately become a donor themselves when they reach the age of 18.


Teaching camp communities is accomplished in several ways depending on the needs of the individual camp. Some camps request on-site visits from past donors and recipients, while others educate their camp through a video that interviews a donor and recipient.


Finding a Hero in You at Camp saves lives!
