One Happy Camper

Studies and families agree:  Jewish overnight camp is a transformative experience in the life of a child. The Milwaukee Jewish Federation and Foundation for Jewish Camp can help your child experience a summer of a lifetime by providing need-blind grants for first-time campers (the first time going 19 days or more to camp) at Jewish overnight camps. There are over 155 camps to choose from, including camps specializing in sports, arts, science, outdoor adventures, waterfront, and special needs. For more information, contact Nicole Boico, Education and Engagement Specialist, at 414-390-5702 who can help you and your first-time overnight camper every step of the way towards a summer of fun.
