The Foundation for Jewish Camp has launched a new Building Loan Program for residential nonprofit Jewish camps to attract and accommodate more campers. Qualified camps are now eligible for an FJC interest-free loan of up to 50% of their project cost, with a maximum loan amount of $1.5 million.

The FJC Building Loan Program is intended for renovation and construction projects that expand camper capacity as well as for projects that upgrade accommodations or facilities. The Jewish experiences and educational opportunities offered to both campers and staff will also be taken into consideration.

Building on the success of the AVI CHAI Camp Building Loan Program, this Program is funded by the Maimonides Fund and is administered by FJC.
