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.
