Join a sub-committee of our Board of Directors
Jacobs Camp strives to be recognized as leaders in Jewish identity-building in the south. We invest in cutting-edge facilities and programming, as well as staff and leadership development, to deliver a premium camper experience. To do this, we look for support from those that care about camp as much as we do. Below are brief descriptions of our board sub-committees. Email our Board Chair, Gary Lazarus for more information.
Recruitment engages and develops mechanisms for ongoing contact and camper recruitment and retention with Jacobs constituencies, as well as supervises the pre-camp mixer in person and virtual meet-ups.
Staff strives to provide the best experience we can for our summer staff members through new program offerings, staff appreciation, and capital improvements for staff areas. Feedback is given based on personal observation and survey data collected by camp and outside sources.
Development identifies and oversees efforts to acquire those resources that help further Eisner and Crane Lake’s mission, and the experiences of our campers and staff.
Medical creates systems that ensure the success of the medical team throughout the summer. The Medical Committee spreads awareness of Jacobs Camp to help recruit doctors and nurses.
Facilities designs the Facilities Master Plan that balances the upkeep and renovation of existing buildings with the emerging needs for new facilities at both sites.
