While many families automatically associate “summer camp” with “overnight camp,” day camp can be an equally exciting and viable option for local campers.

From movement-based camps such as Ramah Day Camp to JCC camps including Kaiserman’s Camp Kef and JCC Medford, NJ, there are a number of options for Philadelphia-area families. Below is a list of area camps.

Important update!

In the past, families applied directly to the Jewish Federation for individual need based camp scholarships. We will not be giving out individual needs based camp scholarships starting in summer 2023. 

In an effort to simplify the financial aid/scholarship process, we are now providing camps with funding that will supplement their scholarship or financial aid funds. This allows families to fill out one scholarship application instead of two and helps the camps fully understand the needs of their families and provide scholarships accordingly. We are currently working with camps to distribute funds over the next few months. 

You will need to reach out to the camp directly to learn more about their scholarship process.
