2023 Jewish Overnight Summer Camp Scholarships

Apply now for Federation’s overnight camp financial aid programs — One Happy Camper and Jewish Overnight Summer Camp Scholarships — to give your child a Jewish summer experience that’s both unforgettable and more affordable.

Recognizing that Jewish overnight camp is one of the most meaningful experiences a child can have in creating a strong and positive Jewish identity, Federation offers these two options to help offset the cost of attendance for Miami-Dade County residents. Partnering with One Happy Camper, a program of the Foundation for Jewish Camps, and Jewish overnight camps across North America, Federation provides need-blind grants of up to $1,000 to families with first-time campers who attend public school or non-Jewish private school. If you’re interested, apply early as a limited number of grants are available. Federation is also accepting applications for our 2023 Jewish Overnight Summer Camp Scholarships for children ages 8-17 who attend public school, private school and Jewish day school or yeshiva and can demonstrate financial need. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, January 31, 2023. Click here to learn more and apply for either opportunity.
