Have your child be part of the fun. Learn more about how your child can get up to $1,000 off Jewish overnight camp through Federation and the One Happy Camper program. Jewish values, culture, and traditions are weaved into the fabric of camp, helping campers to connect to their own identity and the larger Jewish community.
There are a variety of traditional and specialty overnight camps that span different denominations of Judaism, accommodate special needs and interests, and offer unique programming, catering to each family’s needs. Learn more to see if your child is eligible. The impact of Jewish camp is immediate—campers return home connected to a community and friends that will last them a lifetime. And it doesn’t stop there. Children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes, and take on leadership roles in their communities.
Federation’s camping program is part of Shalom San Diego, which aims to make our community the most welcoming, diverse, and inclusive Jewish community in the United States.
Federation sent over 500 kids to camp through OHC and help our local partner camps send over 640 kids go back to camp through scholarships over the last 5 years.
This year we plan to send a minimum of 85 kids through One Happy camper incentive grants and grant our partner camps $35,000 in scholarships to help San Diego families make it more affordable to go to camp.
