YAD Goes to Camp

 

YAD is raising significant funds to send more kids to Jewish summer camp, helping them build a lifelong connection to Jewish identity and values.​

 

One of Memphis Jewish Federation’s top priorities is ensuring a strong, vibrant Jewish future for our children and grandchildren. Our funding of Jewish summer camp scholarships plays an integral role in making this happen. Studies show that Jewish camping experiences foster a lifelong connection to Judaism that often leads to creating future leaders within the community. 
 
However, many families in our community cannot afford to send their kids on this impactful summer journey, which is why the Jewish Federation funds camp scholarships to help thousands of families offset the cost of Jewish summer camp tuition. With your generous support of YAD Goes to Camp, we’ll be able to give even more of our kids a transformative camp experience, helping ensure the Jewish future for many generations to come. 

 

Camps Abroad:

The Federation also funds summer and winter camps abroad, in the Baltics region. Participants interact with young counselors from Israel and former Soviet Union countries and experience Jewish culture firsthand. Learn more about camping experiences abroad.
