WASHINGTON (JTA) — The U.S. Jewish security coordination network will brief summer camp directors on safety.

SCAN, or the Security Community Network, is hosting a conference call Wednesday with "experts on camp security who will provide insight into preparedness, safety and security issues," a release said.

"Recent reports of homegrown terrorist activity and arrests coupled with the current tensions in the Middle East have once again come to the forefront and reinforce the importance of security awareness and comprehensive safety and security planning for the upcoming camping season," the release said.
