What Parents are saying
Thank you so much for your incentives program. My daughter loved the camp that you referred us to. It was so much fun. She connected to Judaism in a very accepting environment, found an amazing Jewish community, and made a bunch of friends in the process. She can't wait to go back next summer!
My son loved everything about the camp - the counselors, the trips, all the activities! Now he knows so much more about his Jewish heritage. Couldn’t be happier with our camp choice. Thank you for your generous gift
