Jewish Early Childhood Day Camp Directors Roundtable

Facilitators: Sasha Kopp, Suri Jacknis
Format: Virtual

About this Network:

This network is a community of practice to support and deepen the work of Jewish Early Childhood Day Camp Directors. Together we will explore both big ideas related to vision, philosophy, core values, and policies as well as share practical strategies that can be helpful in the day to day running of the camp. We will examine artifacts from our practice, discuss case studies of successes and challenges, and provide each other with practical suggestions and helpful wisdom. Our network can be a safe space where we can raise questions that can expand thinking and improve practice.
