As you begin to plan for the summer, you may be looking into the funding you will need to make a child's summer experience a reality. We are happy that our community and the Jewish world can help support the choice to send our community's kids to Jewish summer camp.
If your child is a first-time camper at overnight camp, he/she may be eligible for up to $1,500 off camp this summer. To find out if your child is eligible, go to www.onehappycamper.org.
Our Sisterhood, Women of B'nai Israel, offers funding through the Price Campership Fund. Your child may be eligible if they did not receive assistance from this fund last year. Click here for the Price Campership Award Application due Feb. 12, 2017.
Congregation B’nai Israel offers scholarships through The William Henry Zimmerman URJ Campership Fund, our Summer Camp Scholarship Fund and the Weinberg Godparent Fund. These scholarships ask that campers commit to a mitzvah project that serves the community. The application is available here and due March 15.
Camp Shelanu campers can apply to our Camp Scholarship Fund using this application due May 1.
Madrichim who work in our religious school are eligible to use their accrued hours toward assistance for attending Jewish camp, NFTY events, or their Confirmation trip. These hours may also be accrued year-to-year and saved for the future.
I hope that this information helps you plan for a wonderful summer of fun and learning. Please let me know if you have any questions. Denise Crevin, Education Administrator.
