Jewish Summer camp weaves Jewish values, culture, and traditions into the fabric of camp, helping campers to connect to their own identity and the larger Jewish community.
The impact of Jewish camp is immediate. Campers return home connected to a community and friends that will last them a lifetime. Studies have shown that children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes, and take on leadership roles in their communities. For this reason the Federation provides camperships to any Federation member wishing to send their child to a Jewish away Summer Camp click here to download a campership application from the Federation.
