Summer just isn’t summer without overnight camp! Federation’s Jewish Camp Initiative sends kids to Jewish overnight camp by providing necessary grants and scholarships. The experiences kids have at summer camp help them form a lifetime bond to their Jewish community.
“Our son returned after a month at Camp Coleman with so many new skills and experiences. He learned how to take care of himself, his environment, and be a good friend and responsible part of the camp community. Meanwhile, our daughter attended 2 weeks of camp this summer, and came home asking if she could attend all 8 weeks next year! This tiny, 8-year-old girl blossomed at camp. The experiences she had growing as a leader, increasing her self-esteem, enjoying newfound independence, learning new skills, and making incredible friends are things she would not have gotten without the help of Federation.”
