Jewish Camp

Lots of parents fear that a Jewish camp might be too expensive for the family budget. There are all sorts of camps available, and the costs vary a lot. You can take a look at the community initiatives that could help you cover the costs of the Jewish camp, particularly if your kids have never attended one before.

Check with your local Jewish Federation to find out what programs they are running. Another option would be to talk to grandparents and ask for their help to enhance the grandchildren's Jewish experiences. There is not just one but a multitude of answers when it comes to covering the costs of a Jewish camp. You just need to explore the options.

What if my child is more interested in sports than in his Judaic heritage?

This is one of the issues that give a hard time to lots of parents keen on sending their kid on a Jewish camp. Sometimes, it's a good idea to come up with a solution that takes into consideration the kid's preferences, while also following the lines of Jewish 'education' at the same time.

Tip: Did you know that dryer lint can make great kindling to get a campfire started? Begin collecting dryer lint a few weeks before your trip. Just hang a grocery bag next to your dryer and stuff the lint into the bag.

You should carefully check the list of activities in several Jewish camp programs. You'd be surprised to discover how rich and varied the range of activities can be. Sports are a common part of a Jewish camp, which means that your kid can enjoy his/her favorite pastime in an environment that you approve of.

What if the family is not religious?

It seems that a Jewish camp can provide valuable experience to children from all sorts of homes, from the most secular to the most religious ones. It might be too much to say that a Jewish camp can build a Jewish identity in your kid, if you don't pay attention to religion at home.

It may or may not be so... it's for every parent to decide what to do when it comes to planning the kid's summer activities!
