Summer camp is about so much more than campfires and color war. Kids get the chance to explore who they are—and who they want to become.
Campers are bunkmates and team players, creative problem-solvers and blossoming leaders. They develop independence and learn life skills, and they forge deep and meaningful connections to Judaism that are key to building Jewish identity.
A CAMP FOR EVERYONE
From artists to athletes to just plain kids, there’s a camp for everyone — campers with disabilities very much included. Are you new to the world of Jewish camping? Discover day camps, overnight camps and options for campers with disabilities.
Find out about One Happy Camper grants for first-time campers and how to apply for need-based scholarships with your specific camp. Please see below for important changes in both of our scholarship processes.

One Happy Camper Update
Starting this year, we have enacted a siblings policy. The first child of each family is eligible for the full amount ($700 or $1,000) and each subsequent child in the family, regardless of the year, is eligible for $500. This is in an effort to provide assistance to as many families as possible.
Need Based Update
If you are a returning camper, we are no longer processing individual scholarship applications directly at the Jewish Federation.
