The Jewish Federation supports camp scholarships as part of our mission to lead a strong Jewish Puget Sound by serving as a community voice, strengthening connections to Israel and World Jewry, and making investments in Jewish life, for today and for the next generation. Jewish summer camp gives your child the opportunity to strengthen Jewish identity == growing and gaining independence, making life-long friendships, and exploring interests.
Whether they're singing songs around the campfire, learning about Jewish values, or hiking in the mountains, campers explore what Judaism means to them. At camp, children will not only develop confidence and social skills; they will discover a profound sense of what it means to be Jewish.
Campers are Future Leaders
The impact of Jewish camp lasts a lifetime. Children benefit from Jewish camp experiences by learning to value their Jewish heritage. Campers grow to become active leaders in the Jewish community. In fact, children who attend Jewish summer camps are more likely to engage in Jewish life in many ways, including joining a synagogue, supporting Jewish causes, and becoming rabbis, Jewish educators and community lay leaders.
