Three communities (LA, Chicago, Boston) of the Jewish Teen Education and Engagement Funder Collaborative will share a new approach to teen education and engagement, and the resulting strategies developed with camp partners. Based on data, research, work in the field and independent evaluation, we will share insights about how teens today think about their lives, the broader world, their relationships with others, and what it means to them to live Jewishly. The panel will detail responsive Jewish camp experiences that are attractive to teens, add real meaning to their lives, and help them learn and grow. These lessons will help camp leaders and partners develop new experiences which connect with teen campers regardless of prior level of engagement in Jewish life or current level of Jewish knowledge.
