The Importance of Jewish Overnight Summer Camp


The Federation’s need-based camp scholarships program helps Washington State families with the cost of Jewish overnight camp tuition. By providing you with a variety of funding options, our goal is to ensure that you receive the assistance you need so that your child/children can participate in a Jewish overnight camp experience.


To be eligible for a need-based camp scholarship, you must be a Washington State resident and be signed up with a traditional Jewish camp in the U.S. or Canada.


Is your child a first-time camper? You might be eligible for a One Happy Camper First-Time Camper Incentive Grant. Click here to find out more.
