Apply Now for Jewish Summer Camp Financial Aid


There is still time to apply for the One Happy Camper incentive grants for Jewish overnight summer camp. Jewish overnight camp is one of the most meaningful and formative experiences for a child to help them create a strong and positive Jewish identity. In response, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is partnering with the Foundation for Jewish Camp to offer Miami-Dade County residents One Happy Camper incentive grants to help offset the cost of attending a Jewish summer camp. The One Happy Camper program offers need-blind grants of up to $1,000 to families with first-time campers who attend public school or non-Jewish private school. Campers must be entering grades 1-12 in the 2023-2024 school year, must be enrolled in camp for a minimum of 12 consecutive days, and must not have previously attended overnight Jewish summer camp. A limited number of grants are still available so apply now! Click here to create an account and apply.
