Announcing the Formation of the Association of Independent Jewish Camps

The Association of Independent Jewish Camps (AIJC) has been established to create an opportunity for independent not-for-profit Jewish camps to collaborate in their continued efforts to grow and thrive. The AIJC will allow independent camps to leverage the member benefits of a large association, while maintaining their autonomy and unique Jewish missions.

The AIJC will be a source of information for member camps facilitating data collection, research regarding critical issues, benchmarking operational functions and creating partnerships with other Jewish agencies. A concierge approach will ensure that camp directors and board members have access to camping professionals while program, operational and fundraising cohorts create platforms for best practices to be shared.

Each member camp will be invited to join the AIJC Board strengthening the collaborative atmosphere of the organization. The AIJC is firmly committed to development of camp staff and lay leaders to ensure the highest possible quality experience for the thousands of Jewish camp families who attend AIJC member camps.
