The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle believes that the Jewish overnight camp experience is an integral component of building a child's Jewish identity.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle's Camp Scholarship Program helps families in Washington State with the cost of camp tuition. By providing you with a variety of funding options, our goal is to ensure that you receive the assistance needed so that your child/children can participate in the Jewish overnight camp experience. Camp scholarships are need-based.
