Jewish Camp Initiative - Jewish Atlanta

Jewish Camp Initiative


We’ll just come right out and say it — we love the power of Jewish overnight camp! Study after study proves that the benefits of Jewish overnight camp are profound – Jewish friendships that last a lifetime, a 24/7 Jewish community, a chance to try new things, leadership opportunities and exposure to incredible role models.

Helping Families Find the Right Overnight Camp

We know that choosing a camp is a personal and important decision, which is why Federation’s Camp Concierge provides free, personalized guidance to help Atlanta families find the right Jewish overnight camp, including campers with special needs.

Helping More Kids Go to Camp!

The Jewish Camp Initiative inspires families to choose Jewish overnight camp for their children, increasing the likelihood that they will continue to live active Jewish lives. We believe that Jewish overnight camp is an experience every kid should have! We want to send as many kids from Jewish Atlanta to Jewish overnight camp every summer as possible! Here are some of the ways we help make overnight Jewish camp more affordable:

One Happy Camper Grants

First-time campers who are attending camp for 11-18 days may be eligible to receive $1,000, and campers attending camp for 19 days+ may be eligible to receive $1,500 off their first summer at camp. Jewish day school students are eligible in Atlanta! Grants are first come, first served and are NOT based on financial need. Second year grants are also available, with an income limit.


Federation’s Scholarship Program helps families with the cost of overnight camp tuition. Camp scholarships are available to all families, no matter what income. Applications are reviewed by a Scholarship Committee as part of an anonymous review and allocations process. All applications and inquiries are confidential. Camp scholarships and One Happy Camper incentive grants are both on wait list for Summer 2023.
