Why We Love Jewish Summer Camp

 

Helping children develop greater self-confidence, indpendence, empathy, and problem-solving skills, Jewish camp is a great investment in their future. Because young people who go to Jewish camp tend to stay involved in Jewish community as adults, it is also a sound investment in a strong future for the Jewish community  and the reason the Jewish Federation is proud to offer camp scholarships for young people with special needs.

More Summer Options

  • Incentive Grants

    Jewish camps offer world-class athletics, arts, and specialties -- all wrapped up in a warm, values-based environment where young people connect with their Jewish identity and community.

  • Need-Based Scholarships

    Camp is not a luxury, but a lifeline for struggling families who need help affording safe and nurturing childcare when school is out for summer. Need-based camp scholarships can fill the gap.

  • Teen Travel Grants

    Trips to Israel connect teens to their Jewish identity and community. Grants up to $1000 make it possible for more young people to experience and form their own close relationship with Israel.
