One Happy Camper

The Jewish Federation of Madison is thrilled to announce that we have partnered with the Foundation for Jewish Camp to bring the One Happy Camper program to Madison. If you have a camper in 2nd - 12th  grade, they may be eligible for a grant to attend Jewish overnight camp for the first time.

 

 Application is Closed: One Happy Camper Grants have all been distributed for Summer 2017.

 

To determine if you are eligible for the One Happy Camper grant please read below. If you believe that your camper meets the criteria please complete the online application.

 

The JFM One Happy Camper Program provides grants to encourage children to attend overnight Jewish camp for the first-time. It is not a scholarship fund and is not need-based. Our goal is to engage families who are considering sending their children to Jewish overnight camp and, in effect, to give them up to $1,000 off their camp fees to try a Jewish one.

 

The following outlines the eligibility criteria for this program:

  • $1,000 grants awarded to first-time campers attending camp for 19 or more consecutive days.
  • $700 grants awarded to first-time campers attending camp for 12-18 consecutive days.
  • First time camper must be entering grades 2-12 (after camp).
  • Camper must attend one of the 150+ non-profit, Jewish, overnight camps listed on the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s website (www.OneHappyCamper.org/FindaCamp).​

 

Note: This program is an outreach initiative for children who are not currently receiving an immersive, daily Jewish experience. As such, children who attend Jewish day school or Yeshiva are not eligible for program. If your child is not eligible and/or are interested in learning about financial-needs based grants or other camper funding opportunities please visit www.JewishCamp.org/Scholarships, contact your camp, or the contact person listed at the bottom of this page.

 

If you need additional assistance, please call Ellen Weismer (608)278-1808.
