Federation's Summer Scholars Program


YOUR Jewish summer, YOUR way!

Participants joined us for a community-wide end-of-summer Closing Celebration, held online Thursday, August 6 at 6:00 P.M.

Jewish summer camps, Israel trips, and other immersive experiences are an integral part of Jewish adolescence. Summer 2020 was different than any other summer in history, but we wanted to make it easy for Memphis teens to engage Jewishly. Federation convened resources for middle and high school students who were looking for Jewish summer engagement opportunities, and incentivized students who participate.


We called this innovative program Camp@HomeStrong. Congratulations to the 53 students who participated.
