The Jewish Federation believes that the Jewish overnight camp experience is essential to building a child's Jewish identity. The Federation's Camp Scholarship Program helps families in Washington State with the cost of camp tuition. By providing you with a variety of funding options, our goal is to ensure that you receive the assistance needed so that your child/children can participate in a Jewish overnight camp experience.
