2016 Jewish Overnight Summer Camp Scholarships Available for Miami-Dade Youth

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation is now accepting applications for Summer 2016 Jewish overnight camp scholarships for children between the ages of 8 and 17. This is the 14th year Federation is offering need-based scholarships to Miami-Dade County families to help make Jewish overnight summer camps more affordable.

Funding assistance is available for Jewish overnight camps which are listed on the Foundation for Jewish Camp website AND are located in the United States.

Financial assistance is limited to one session only.

Applications are no longer accepted at this time.

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must live in Miami-Dade County. Families must demonstrate a financial need and submit, in addition to an application, the latest income tax return and a letter of acceptance from the camp.

Recognizing that Jewish overnight camp is a significant vehicle for Jewish engagement, the Annual Federation /UJA Campaign has allocated $100,000 each year since 2002 for funding assistance. Last year, 192 need-based scholarships were awarded to children, enabling them to attend a variety of overnight camps from all religious streams, as well as JCC overnight programs and youth group movements.
