MAKING CHANGE THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS
M² Camp Educators Cohort is a collaborative learning environment, convening partners from a broad range of camps.
To make change happen, M² believes that both the camp director leading the camp's vision, and the senior camp educator responsible for educational programs, must work together.
As a community, they experiment with designing educational visions and approaches to create Jewish experiences that matter.

THE JEWISH VALUE PROPOSITION
January 12-15, 2020
San Diego, CA
This seminar is about values exploration, focusing on what makes a value a Jewish one. Over the course of the program we navigate the differences between 'thin' and 'thick' values, and explore how through the cultivation of a camp culture and the design of specific programs these values can become a lived camp experience.
March 30-April 2, 2020
This seminar highlights the choreographic principles that illuminate and bring experiences to life. Participants gain skills in methodologies related to sensory education, spatial design, and the typology of activities.
THE PARTICULARS OF MEANING MAKING
September 13-16, 2020
Camp is one of the most powerful examples of the magic created through true immersion. In this final seminar, we explore how sequencing, rhythm, and flow contribute to the processes of transformation, while gaining perspectives on the process of meaning making.
CEC is targeted at camps who are committed to both the director/senior professional and Jewish educator fully participating. Candidates must be open to learning from a diverse faculty and excited to learn in an intense cohort environment.
Participation at all CEC seminars in their entirety is mandatory.
