CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia offers need-based scholarships that cover between 10% and 30% of the cost of camp, working to ensure that camp remains a viable option for families of all financial backgrounds

There are close to two hundred Jewish overnight camping options that campers can pick from with six major camps located right in Philadelphia’s backyard, only 1 to 3 hours away: Camp Galil, Pinemere Camp, Golden Slipper Camp, Camp Ramah in the Poconos, URJ Camp Harlam, and Camp JRF. Each one offers campers a unique experience based on its environment, Jewish programming, and size. “Jewish camp” is anything but a monolithic term and lest one have the idea that Jewish camp connotes hours of studying the Torah or daily Hebrew lessons, this could not be further from the truth.

There’s swimming, sports, arts and crafts, singing, and campfires. Everything you’d expect from a fun and enriching summer experience. And if your child has specific interests, there are now even “speciality camps” located across the country that focus on everything from science and technology to the arts, all with a Jewish focus.

And kids don’t need to go to overnight camp to have an impactful and fun summer experience. In the Philadelphia area alone are 8 day camps with a variety of programs to suit children at almost every age, pre-K through teens.

For all of these summer experience, Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia offers need-based scholarships that cover between 10% and 30% of the cost of camp, working to ensure that camp remains a viable option for families of all financial backgrounds. Ask many Jewish adults what was a defining part of their childhood and many of them will say “summer camp.” It’s the perfect place for a child to connect to their identity and culture, while having an amazing summer that they will want to tell all their friends about.
