The Overnight Jewish Camping Program encourages Jewish youth from the greater Cincinnati area to apply for grants to enable them to attend a Jewish overnight camp.Grants are available for all children, regardless of whether or not they have previously attended a Jewish overnight camp. The grants are an investment in our children's future, made possible by the support and generosity of The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati.
First Year Grants
Up to $1,800 available for three-week sessions or more
Second Year Grants
Up to $1,000 available for three-week sessions
Up to $500 available for two-week sessions.
For further information, please contact Karyn Zimerman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-985-1534. It is highly recommended that you register for camp early, as many Jewish camps fill up prior to our May deadline.
* Your camp must be on the list of approved camps to qualify. Click here for a complete list.
