Federation Provides Summer Camp Scholarships

Recognizing that Jewish overnight camp is an important part of strengthening a child’s Jewish identity, Federation distributed more than $122,000 to Miami-area children ages 8 to 17 to attend camp this summer. The scholarships are all-inclusive, placing children at more than 40 different sleepaway camps, which run the gamut from non-denominational and Conservative, to Reform and Orthodox. Sixty-six of the kids receiving scholarships are first-time campers. The inspirational summer camp experience provides children with long-lasting friendships, self-discovery, and quite often, the spark for a lifetime of Jewish engagement, fellowship and pride. Since the initiative’s launch in 2002, the Annual Federation/UJA Campaign has allocated more than $1.3 million to this cause.

The Mission of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is to mobilize human and financial resources to care for those in need, strengthen
Jewish life and advance the unity, values and shared purpose of the Jewish people in Miami, in Israel and around the world.
