The Jewish Federation offers special scholarship coupons for campers attending a Jewish residential camp for the first time. The program is designed to encourage youngsters to try a Jewish overnight camp for the first time. It reflects a belief that Jewish summer camping is an ideal way to strengthen Jewish identity by immersing campers in a Jewish environment filled with fun, challenges and learning. The hope is that once campers get a taste of Jewish summer camping, they will return summer after summer. For further information, contact the Jewish Federation at 312-444-2904.
