One Happy Camper
We know that for children, Jewish camp is just plain fun. But it’s so much more than that – it’s camp with a soul. At camp, kids get the chance to explore who they are, and who they want to become, in an inspiring, fun-filled environment. Whether they’re playing basketball, ziplining, or dancing with their friends, Jewish camp creates a community of campers and young leaders who feel sure of themselves and proud of their heritage.
One Happy Camper grants of up to $1,000 are available to 1st through 12th graders. To be eligible, the camper must not have previous camp experience of more than 11 consecutive days. The program is a partnership between the Jewish Federation of St. Louis and the Foundation for Jewish Camp. The grant can be applied toward a minimum 12-day session at one of 150+ nonprofit Jewish summer camps. Limited grants available. Your child can share in the summer of a lifetime while strengthening Jewish identity, making lasting connections and learning Jewish values.
