Through several special camp and Israel scholarship funds, we award money each year to help deserving students. All requests are kept strictly confidential.

Additional camp and Israel scholarships are offered by the Community Legacy Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Kansas City, called the Guardian Society for Jewish Children. If your child is thinking of attending a Jewish Camp or Israel Trip, you will also want to fill out a form for the Rabbi Gershon Hadas Guardian Society for Jewish Children Application. The Guardian Society is a community fund available to the Jewish children of Greater Kansas City. For many years, this scholarship program has enabled hundreds of young people to participate in Jewish enrichment summer programs, including camps and Israel programs. Scholarship assistance for Israel programs is provided by the Community Legacy Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Kansas City.

Financial Incentives Available for First-time Campers

Are your children attending Jewish overnight camp for the first time? If so, the Foundation for Jewish Camp offers camp incentives, available to kids in the Greater Kansas City Metro area. These financial incentives are for campers who are attending a camp session that is 19 days or longer for the first time. Note: Campers who have previously attended camp sessions that are shorter than 19 days are still eligible for One Happy Camper incentives. To apply, go to and click on One Happy Camper for application directions.  This incentive is brought to the local Kansas City metro area by the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City.
