Jewish Camp Programs

Camp has proven to be a valuable resource in connecting children with their Jewish identity. For many campers, year-round connections are being made where none may have previously existed. Recognizing these strong connections between attending camp and becoming an active member of our Jewish community is the driving force behind our camping programs.

Federation is proud to offer two different programs to help send local kids to Jewish camp — One Happy Camper, for first-time campers, and Federation's Needs-Based Camp Scholarship.

Needs-Based Camp Scholarships
Federation's Jewish Resident Camp Scholarship Fund exists so that every Jewish San Diego youth has the opportunity to experience Jewish summer camp. Scholarships are up to $250. Contact Janese Cassel to learn more.

Residential Jewish Camp: One Happy Camper
Federation has partnered with the Foundation for Jewish Camp to offer grants of up to $1,000 for San Diegan kids to experience their first Jewish overnight camp! Learn more.





  • Why Go To Jewish Camp?

    The magic of Jewish camp is rooted in its 24/7 atmosphere. Jewish values, connection to Israel, and the culture of Judaism are entwined with basketball, arts and crafts and swimming — creating a community of campers that are proud to be Jewish.

  • Find Specialty Camps

    Summers at overnight camps are packed with a wide range of fun activities—aquatics, arts and crafts, basketball and soccer, dance, music, cooking, archery, drama, outdoor adventure and hiking, and much more! Campers are encouraged to discover new skills and interests they never knew they had.
