One Happy Camper First Year
One Happy Camper is a program
that provides grants to every first-time camper attending a Jewish not-for-profit
overnight camp. It was created by the
Foundation for Jewish Camp to increase awareness of Jewish overnight camping
and expand enrollments at Jewish summer camps across North America. This
innovative program is currently in place in over 40 Jewish communities
throughout the United States. Research shows that kids who attend Jewish summer
camp have a greater connection to the Jewish community as adults.
The Farash Institute for
Jewish Education in partnership with The Foundation for Jewish Camp will
provide $1800 grants to campers attending Jewish overnight camp for the first
time for more than 19 days. First-time campers attending Jewish overnight camp
for 12-18 days will receive $1000 grants.
