Summer Camp Scholarship Applications Now Available

camp scholarship

Need-based scholarship applications are now being accepted for summer 2020 sessions at Jewish overnight summer camps. Federation recognizes that children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes and take on leadership roles in their communities. For this reason, the Annual Federation/UJA Campaign helps make camp more accessible to Miami-Dade families. Last year, nearly 200 scholarships were awarded to children or youth attending summer camps across the US, spanning different denominations of Judaism. For more information and to apply, click here. Applications are due by January 30, 2020.
