The PJ Library®, a program of The Harold Grinspoon Foundation, announces PJ GOES TO CAMP, in partnership with the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s One Happy Camper program. Families affiliated with The PJ Library®, sending their children to one of over 155 nonprofit overnight Jewish camps in North America for the first time, are now eligible for grants of up to $1000. This generous collaboration makes available grants for up to 500 children on a first-come, first-served basis.
Program administrator Kirstin Gadiel advises families interested in sending their children to Jewish overnight camps to apply soon for PJ Goes to Camp! “Since the announcement in late November, we’ve received close to 200 applications and inquiries,” she reports. “Parents have been eager to take advantage of the generous offer, especially in a tough economy. PJ Goes to Camp!  is helping a new generation of children to have a transformative Jewish experience.”
To apply for a PJ Goes to Camp One Happy Camper grant, parents must first register children at an eligible camp for a minimum 3-week session. Grants of $700 are available for children in 13 Western states who are registered to attend a 2-week camp session.
