Give Your Child the Gift of Jewish Camp

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, in partnership with the Foundation for Jewish Camp, offers One Happy Camper First-Time Camper Incentive Grants for Washington State residents.

If your child is a first-time camper, you might be eligible for up to $1,000 off the cost of a Jewish overnight camp experience. Eligibility requirements are as follows:

  • Camper must already be registered for camp before applying for an incentive grant.
  • Camper must be attending a non-profit Jewish overnight summer camp for the first time for 12 or more days. If the camper has attended camp previously for fewer than 12 days, the camper is still eligible for an incentive grant.
  • Camper must be entering grades 2 – 10 the following fall.
  • Camper cannot attend Jewish day school. This grant is intended to provide an incentive for first-time immersive Jewish experiences.

Campers attending camp for 19 or more days may be eligible for a $1,000 grant. Campers attending 12 or more days may be eligible for a $700 grant.

With more than 150 camps to choose from (including three in Washington State), it’s easy to find the perfect fit for your child. To begin the application process or view a list of eligible camps, visit OneHappyCamper.org.
