We’re doing more online and less on paper!

Our resident summer camp, Camp JCA Shalom, is proud to be transitioning into an entirely online-based operations system. Our camp registration is already online, resulting in hundreds of trees being saved every year. When the occasion calls for it…we use recycled paper for our forms and promotions.
