PJ Goes to Camp – Summer of 2022  

First-time campers are eligible for grants of up to $1,000 

Summer camp can be a transformative experience, providing children with the opportunity to make memories and friendships that last a lifetime. The mission of PJ Goes to Camp is to provide more children the opportunity to attend Jewish overnight camp for the first time by offering grants to qualifying families. . 


Grants are distributed to students who attend a Jewish day school by lottery:
Because of the high demand and limited number of available grants, awards to students who attend a Jewish day school are distributed through a lottery system.  The lottery for grants for day school students will be held in November.  However, day school students may complete an application and be placed on our wait list.  Day school students who apply after November 16, 2020 will be placed on the wait list in the order in which their request is received.   Click here for PJ Goes to Camp



Jewish Residential Camp Scholarships 

Every year Chicago’s Jewish Federation works with Midwest Jewish overnight camps to help families with financial need-based scholarships.  JUF scholarships are only available for residents of the Chicago Metropolitan area serviced by Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago (that is, any of the following six counties: Cook, DuPage, Lake, McHenry, Kane and Will).   


In addition, first time campers are eligible for $500 Camp Coupon. This incentive program has been created jointly with One Happy Camper.   Campers may receive either the $500 grant or a scholarship but not both.  Click here to claim your coupon or to apply for a scholarship


Please check with your local Jewish Federation for their summer camp financial aid information.
