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 Chavurah 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.
