OTHER OPPORTUNITIES:  Please check with your local synagogues and Federations for opportunities that may be available to your family. As a reminder, One Happy Camper grants are generally offered only through PJ Library and specific local Jewish Federations.

If you know of any opportunities that are available, but not listed here, please email Camp Judaea at info@campjudaea.org.

Reminder: Most granting agencies that award funds on a needs basis want to know that families have made arrangements with Camp Judaea to cover a portion of the tuition prior to applying for scholarship. If you have not already, please ensure that you have a payment plan with camp that covers a good portion of your balance. When applying for assistance, agencies will want to know that you have approached multiple sources for assistance. Besides the places listed above, synagogues and Jewish Family Services are also good places to try. We understand this process can be confusing and frustrating at times. We would like this process to be as easy as possible. If you have questions regarding the scholarship process, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 404-634-7883 or info@campjudaea.org.
