Thank you!

Thank you for investing in your child’s Jewish journey and recognizing the value of the overnight Jewish camp experience. We know it’s a significant investment, and it is our hope that the One Happy Camper incentive grant you received was helpful. Almost 100 Milwaukee-area children have now received One Happy Camper grants provided through the Milwaukee Jewish Federation and the Foundation for Jewish Camp. Our ongoing investment in the program stems from our mission: to secure a vibrant Jewish community now and into the future. Thank you for joining us in that mission.

Ready for next summer?

Registration for the Summer 2022 camp session is now open. While you are only able to receive the One Happy Camper grant once, we hope you’ll register your child(ren) for Jewish overnight camp next summer and pursue other financial aid that may be available. As many of you already know, financial assistance is often available through the camps themselves. In addition, many synagogues provide campership scholarships to congregants. Need-based camp scholarships will also once again be offered through the Jewish Community Foundation of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation. The application for this scholarship is available here. becomes available, please contact Tziporah Altman-Shafer, Jewish Education Community Planner.
