A fun way for Jewish children or youth to develop confidence and a strong Jewish identity is to attend Jewish Summer Camps. We know that Jewish campers are more likely to celebrate Shabbat, attend synagogue, support Jewish charities, and feel a connection to Israel as adults. Your Federation makes overnight Jewish Summer Camp accessible to more of Atlanta’s Jewish children with needs-based scholarships, One Happy Camper first-year and second-year grants, PJ Goes to Camp grants, and grants for campers with special needs. Get the details at atlantajewishcamp.org.
We assist metro Atlanta’s Jewish families with the cost of camp tuition based on financial need. The Scholarship Review Committee awards scholarships through a confidential and anonymous review and allocation process. There are no restrictions on the type of school a child attends or the number of children in a family who can apply.
One Happy Camper grants
We offer One Happy Camper grants of up to $1,000 for first-time sleepaway campers ($500 for a second year). Jewish day school students are not eligible. Grants are first come, first served and are NOT based on financial need. To apply, complete the One Happy Camper application.
PJ Goes to Camp
Jewish day school students may be eligible for grants up to $1000 towards first-time camp tuition if they are a past or present PJ Library family.
