Jewish Summer Camp Grant Opportunities
For many years the Cohen family has been an integral part of Jewish life in New Hampshire and the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire is delighted that they have chosen to help honor this legacy of community commitment by helping more children attend Jewish summer camp. The Annebelle and Arnold Cohen Camperships is a needs-based program which will allow a limited number of Jewish children in New Hampshire to attend one of the three wonderful Jewish overnight camps run by the non-profit Eli and Bessie Cohen Camps organization: Camp Pembroke, Camp Tel Noar and Camp Tevya.
If you are interested in finding out more please contact the JFNH office at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Arnold and Annebelle Cohen Camperships provide a 1/3 discount for the cost of attending one of their three camps, for one child. Applicants should be prepared to provide financial information, as requested, as this is a need-based program.
The Cohen Camps include Camp Tevya, a large co-ed overnight camp located in Brookline, New Hampshire as well as the slightly smaller co-ed overnight Camp Tel Noar in Hampstead, New Hampshire and Camp Pembroke, an overnight camp for girls in Pembroke, Massachusetts (near Cape Cod). For more information about each of the Cohen Camps and the unique experiences they have to offer, please go to: http://www.cohencamps.org/camps/let-us-help-you-choose/
The Jewish Federation of New Hampshire in partnership with The Foundation for Jewish Camp (www.OneHappyCamper.org) is delighted to announce our 2016 Camp Incentive Program. Through this initiative, JFNH will offer a limited number of grants for first time campers attending a Jewish summer camp.
We know that no experience is more powerful, thrilling, or transformative than Jewish overnight camp. Specific memories may vary— camp-wide Maccabiah games, self-made pottery coming out of the kiln, a hike ending around a campfire, challenge of the ropes course, the lakeside Shabbat—but all Jewish camps create life-long friendships and unbreakable bonds to Judaism and the Jewish Community.
Children with pivotal Jewish experiences become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes, and take on leadership roles in their communities. For these reasons, the JFNH has committed to this exciting initiative.
