Is your child ready to try overnight camp for the first time? You may be eligible for a grant from the One Happy Camper program.

About One Happy Camper

One Happy Camper provides grants of up to $1000 to families with children attending nonprofit Jewish overnight camps for the first time. One Happy Camper, a program of the Foundation for Jewish Camp, is funded locally by Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia.

Campers can receive either a $700 incentive grant for a first-time overnight camp experience lasting 12 to 18 consecutive days OR a $1000 incentive grant for a first-time camp experience lasting 19 or more consecutive days.

One Happy Camper grants are awarded on a first-come-first-served basis; therefore, we encourage people to apply as early as possible. Please make sure you are fully registered for camp before submitting your One Happy Camper application.
