Calgary Jewish Federation helps ensure that nobody is denied Jewish experiences due to financial difficulty. Please see the programs below that open doors to Jewish life, including Integrated Bursary Program and One Happy Camper (see below).
The Integrated Bursary Program: Making Jewish Life More Affordable
One Happy Camper: Summer Camp Subsidies
Summers spent at Jewish sleep-over camps turn excited Jewish youth into engaged and spirited Jewish adults. In fact, research shows that summer camp experiences are an important contributor to Jewish identity building. To encourage attendance, Calgary Jewish Federation partners with the Foundation for Jewish Camp in the One Happy Camper program.
One Happy Camper offers a one-time $1000 incentive grant to Jewish youth who have never before attended a full session of sleep away camp. This grant is not available to children currently enrolled in Jewish day schools.
