They say that Jewish overnight camp is one of the three most effective vehicles for attracting and engaging young people in Jewish life. Kids who attend camp:
- Feel a deep, personal, lifelong commitment to their Jewish identity, ownership of their Judaism and connection to Israel.
- As adults, they tend to prioritize Jewish experiences and incorporate Jewish values and knowledge into their family life.
- Are equipped with a greater sense of community, connectedness, competency and resilience.
You still have a chance to make a difference and ensure that kids from all over metro Atlanta can attend camp this summer—like Former Kid and current President and CEO of Federation, Eric M. Robbins!
Overnight camp gives kids lifelong connections to their Jewish community. And many children are only able to attend because of scholarships and grants. Please, donate now to ensure that Atlanta’s kids get to experience the magic of Jewish summer camp!
