At Jewish overnight camp, kids discover who they are – and who they want to become – while having the time of their lives.
They try out new things and find the best versions of themselves. Basketball and soccer? Of course. Sailing and waterskiing? Yes! Music and drama and art? You bet. Specialty programs in science or entrepreneurship or culinary arts? We’ve got those, too. At Jewish camp, kids can do it all – and while they’re doing it, they make lifelong friends and build important life skills. They develop independence, self-confidence, and leadership. They learn determination and problem solving. And at the end of the day, they get to sing songs, toast marshmallows, and make memories.
One Happy Camper, the Foundation for Jewish Camp, has opened grants to all Jewish first-time campers in Missouri, with the exclusion of Kansas City. The program offers up to $1,000 for first-time campers, understanding that Jewish overnight camp helps young people strengthen Jewish identity, make lasting connections, and learn Jewish values.
There’s a perfect camp for every child. Find yours at OneHappyCamper.org or contact us at OHC@JFedSTL.org or 314-442-3776.
