Camp is a proven model to build leaders in our community. We focus on the individual through the power of kehillah, allowing each camper to be the best version of themselves.
Several studies into the shaping of Jewish career choices show that one of the reasons most frequently cited by Jewish communal professionals to explain their career path is the childhood camp experience. The recent study of Jewish leaders sponsored by the AVI CHAI Foundation (Wertheimer 2010) found that 71% of young American Jewish leaders attended Jewish overnight camp and a recent survey of Jewish communal professionals (Cohen 2010) indicated consistent results, further testifying to the great extent to which Jewish leaders in various roles report high levels of Jewish camp attendance.
