In just a couple of days, we will say goodbye to 5776 and welcome the Jewish New Year 5777 with apples and honey, well-wishes, and hopes for a sweet new year.  As we proudly reflect on the past year and recent completion of our 56th summer season, we are so thankful for the amazing memories that were created by campers and staff and the wonderful opportunities that Camp Judaea provided them.

As we celebrate our own successes and accomplishments, it is important to remember those whose year was not as sweet and full as ours.  In 2016, Camp Judaea served 623 campers and over 35% of those campers received financial aid based on need.

Now we look ahead to our 57th season and watch our enrollment climb faster than ever before.  Many of the applicants have already indicated that they will need financial assistance in order to send their children to camp, and we anticipate even more will request help as we get closer to the summer.

Every child should have the opportunity to attend Camp Judaea and should not have to miss out on a summer of Zionism, friendship, and fun due to financial circumstances.

You can make Camp Judaea a reality for deserving campers by making a gift to the Camp Judaea scholarship fund.

A family that you so generously helped send to camp last year could not be any more thankful:

“…You have made a very difficult time for our family so much easier and taken an incredible weight off of our shoulders and made our souls sing…Then today when I received your email (about scholarship), I literally let out a sigh of relief that my kids, through you guys, will be shaped to be the humans I want them to be, and be kind, compassionate, and have a strong love for all Jews and mankind.”

Thank you and Shana Tova!
