Jewish Overnight Camp Scholarships

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. The JFGS need-based camp scholarship program is a joint effort with camps and synagogues. All financial information submitted will be shared among the organizations.

Applications for the 2015 camping season are available!

IMPORTANT: Before getting started, please download instructions for filling out your application. Please submit your application through the scholarship application management page.
