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.
Thank you to all the families who turned in applications by the second-round deadline of Friday, May 2, 2014. The remaining 20 percent of funds were allocated in this round. If you have any questions, please contact Benjamina Menashe, Israel Programs and Camping Scholarships Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206.774.2227.
The Jewish Federation has set a goal of increasing the number of Washington State children attending Jewish summer camps by 25 percent over three years, with a preference for Washington State camps. Please donate to Jewish camping today.
