For summer 2023 we are continuing to offer the choice between two options: a short form with a pre-determined award amount ($250) or a longer application with a need-based award to be determined on a case-by-case basis by our award committee.
As with previous years, the application will open November 1 for Summer 2023 applicants. Our priority deadline remains February 15th, 2023.
If you have any questions regarding the new scholarship options, please email our Camp Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At JCRS, we recognize the value of Jewish sleep-away camp as a unique opportunity for fun, personal growth, and Jewish identity-building. Jewish sleep-away camp allows children to enjoy new social activities and learning in a special environment that nurtures Jewish identity. JCRS would like all interested children to have this opportunity, but we recognize that for many families the high cost of overnight camp is prohibitive. In 2022, the JCRS provided partial scholarship funding for over 418 children to attend Jewish camp. The amount of these scholarships varies in accordance with the circumstances of the child and family.
