2014 Overnight Camp Scholarship Application

Congratulations on making the decision for your child to participate in a Jewish overnight camp experience. The Greater Miami Jewish Federation looks forward to helping you achieve this goal.

Our need-based program, provided by Federation from funds raised through the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign, is open to Jewish children ages 8 to 17 who are Miami-Dade County residents. Scholarships are available only for those overnight Jewish summer camp programs located in the United States and listed on the Foundation for Jewish Camp website. Financial assistance is limited to one session only.

First-time campers may apply for one-time incentive grants at One Happy Camper.

All applications are held in strict confidence and are reviewed anonymously. Preference will be given to those families whose children are attending overnight camp for the first time. Also, in keeping with our primary goal of helping those with the greatest need, Federation awards scholarships strictly on a case-by-case basis.
