The Chizuk (Strengthening) program strengthens Jewish life and learning at camp through identifying and placing Chizuk Fellows at eligible residential JCC camps – those that previously participated in the Lekhu Lakhem program – and facilitating their professional development. Chizuk Fellows are senior-level Jewish educators who have both a solid grounding in education as well as extensive experience in camping. They work with the camp directors to integrate meaningful, quality Jewish content and experiences that add to the magic and joy of the camp program. AVI CHAI covers the salaries for the Chizuk Fellows on a declining basis, and for training costs each summer.
