Summer of a Lifetime

Camp is so much more than just an incredible summer. Studies show that children who attend Jewish overnight camp have higher rates of synagogue affiliation, and a stronger connection to Jewish life and Israel. Plus, kids discover all the magic of sleepaway camp—from building friendships, to learning new skills, to going on new adventures—and make memories that will last a lifetime. ​

One Happy Camper


Start a tradition of summer fun! Discover all that Jewish camp has to offer—from sports and arts, to music and science—and how to afford summers your kids will never forget. With the One Happy Camper grant, you could qualify for $700 or $1,000 off!

To qualify for the $700 One Happy Camper grant, your child must:


  • Attend Jewish overnight camp as a first-time camper next summer

  • Sign up for a minimum session of 12 days*

  • Belong to a participating synagogue and/or live in the Greater Boston area

  • Not be enrolled as a student in Jewish day school

If your child is a first-time camper attending camp for 3 weeks or more, and meets the requirements above, you may qualify for a $1,000 grant for the first camper in your family and $500 for any siblings. 

*Campers that attended a session shorter than 12 days last summer and are attending camp for more than 12 days can apply for a $700 or $1,000 One Happy Camper grant for this summer. Any camper who went to camp for 12 days or more last summer will not be eligible for a grant next summer.
