Summer 2016  Educator Trainings

JTFN recommends that each camp designate two primary staff to be involved in this program:

Administrator - This is a senior year-round camp professional who will oversee the implementation of this program. This can be the Camp Director, Assistant/Associate Director, Development Director, or Jewish Life Director.

Summer Educator - This is a summer staff member who will facilitate this program on the ground. This can be a Unit/Division Head, CIT Director, Program Director, or Education Specialist.  

All interested summer camps are encouraged to participate in one of the JTFN Summer Educator training opportunities (based on previous experience with Jewish teen philanthropy):
