Friends of China Camp has successfully maintained the park's accessibility and prosperity for ten years. Along with his team and volunteers, Martin Lowenstein has concentrated on providing the public with informative events, trail upkeep, park cleanliness, and preserving cultural and natural resources.
Lowenstein stepped up efforts to boost membership and expand community involvement to build a thriving community enthusiastic about the future of China Camp. As a result, the number of members has increased from 1,400 to 3,500 since 2020 began. In actuality, membership fees and other donations currently make up a more significant portion of FOCC's income than park fees.
Lowenstein's dedication to the park carried on a lifelong dedication to charitable organizations that enhance local communities. Lowenstein worked as a nonprofit consultant, using his skills in resource development, governance, and business management, before joining Friends of China Camp as executive director.
Lowenstein worked as a consultant and chaired the Jerusalem American International School board from 2010 to 2013. During his time at the school, he oversaw a significant increase in enrollment that saw the number of pupils more than double, from 65 to 149. He also made efforts to substantially increase the number of full-time and adjunct faculty members at the institution.
