With gracious support from the Staenberg Family Foundation, Songleader Boot Camp is excited to offer Jewish overnight and day camps a program to help transform the musical cultures and leadership in Jewish camping.
The goal of the Staenberg Camping chavurah is to build strong, vibrant, and lasting music, leadership and Jewish education programs. By cultivating powerful and effective songleading cultures, we build community, enhance prayer experiences, and learn leadership skills that help to create lifelong memories. Music is essential to creating camp environments filled with spirit, energy, and excitement. Together, we hope to strengthen the culture of music, songleading and leadership in camps throughout North America.
Nine camps will participate in this year’s chavurah. Two participants from each camp will attend the SLBC National Conference in St. Louis. Participating camps also receive ongoing support before, during, and after the summer including a summertime onsite SLBC consultant visit.
All participating camps will be selected through an application process. Apply now!
Applications are due by end of day Tuesday, October 29.
