Camperships & Scholarships


Jewish Experiential Funds 

Research shows that Jewish camps and personal Israel experiences early in life remain highly effective vehicles for developing engaged Jews. 

Each year, Jewish Federation provides financial assistance to local community members who would not otherwise be able to participate in programs that have cost barriers like summer camp and Israel travel experiences. 

Please note that many camps also provide substantial support. All first-time campers (and their parents) are encouraged to look at Foundation for Jewish Camp and pay special attention to the Bunk Connect and One Happy Camper programs.
