With gracious support from the Staenberg Family Foundation, Songleader Boot Camp and the JCC Association are excited to offer JCC Camps Rock, a program to transform the musical cultures of JCC day and overnight camps.
The goal of the JCC Camps Rock program is to build strong, vibrant, and lasting music programs. Music builds community, enhances prayer experiences, creates lifelong memories, and is critical in creating a camp environment filled with spirit, energy, and excitement. Together, JCC Association and SLBC hope to strengthen the culture of music and songleading in JCC camps throughout North America.
Nine JCC camps will participate in this year’s JCC Camps Rock program. Two participants from each camp 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.
JCC Camps Rock Impact
2018 JCC Camps Rock!
SLBC National Conference in St. Louis was great both in terms of practical musical skills development and general leadership training. Above all, I found it to be spiritually moving and a great reminder of why we, Jewish educators, do what we do.

I have been to other conferences where follow up was weak, but the follow up and support from SLBC has been just what the JCC Camps at Medford needed. I am so proud to say MY CAMP HAS RUACH THROUGH SONG!! I left SLBC empowered with practical tools to make it happen!
