Project SafeCamp is an original, highly professional counselor training program designed to educate and empower young adults as they face the increasingly difficult situations present in many Jewish summer camps today.
This unique program includes a comprehensive safety curriculum that can be easily accessed online or in a variety of other convenient venues. Our team of experts has researched the most pressing issues outlined by both camp directors and the counselors themselves and has shaped the program to fully address those needs. A series of four videos presents counselors with the skills and strategies to respond to both the more challenging as well as the more common camper concerns that arise in all camps.
Our mission is to assist camp directors across the country in equipping their counselors to handle the sensitive matters associated with many of the children who attend our camps today. Our goal is to make this all-inclusive instruction available to every camp and counselor alike, and for camps to ultimately require every staff member to participate in the Project SafeCamp training and certificate program.
It is our hope that by working with camp directors and counselors in spreading safety awareness and education to Jewish camps worldwide, together we will be able to provide our children with safer and more supportive camp environments.
