Specialty Camps Incubator provides expertise for entrepreneurs as they implement their vision for new nonprofit, Jewish overnight specialty camps. These camps are dedicated to a specific skill or area of interest while introducing and integrating Jewish culture. The Camp Incubator seeks to develop camps to reach demographic groups and geographic regions underserved by existing traditional and specialty Jewish camps, such as science and technology, performing and fine arts, sports and fitness, and environmental and outdoor programming. Following the successful first Incubator, a program of the Foundation for Jewish Camp funded by the Jim Joseph Foundation, AVI CHAI has joined the partnership for Incubator II, which is currently working with four new camps anticipated to open by summer 2014.
