Jewish summer camp gives your child the opportunity to grow and gain independence, make life-long friendships, and explore their 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 join a synagogue, support Jewish causes, and become rabbis, Jewish educations and community lay leaders.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle so strongly believes in the importance of the Jewish camp experience, that it strives to give every Jewish child the opportunity to be a Jewish camper. Click HERE to find more information about scholarships for Jewish overnight camps.
