With summer right around the corner, many Jewish children across Colorado are hoping for the chance to go to overnight Jewish summer camp. Studies show that children with meaningful Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes, and take on leadership roles in their communities. But with the high cost of overnight camp, many families are unable to afford this type of adventure for their children.
JEWISHcolorado‘s One Happy Camper program has given the gift of Jewish summer camp to over 600 kids in Colorado. Each year, children are left on the waitlist for One Happy Camper grants, simply due to lack of funds. Anyone interested in supporting this program to help ensure that every child who wants to go to Jewish overnight summer camp is able to, JEWISHcolorado is accepting gifts. Thanks to a generous donor, all gifts will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 through the end of April.
JEWISHcolorado is committed to helping kids explore their Jewish identity and experience Jewish overnight summer camp this coming season. Click here to learn more about One Happy Camper and a one-to-one match from a generous donor.
