Culture of Generosity – Thank You!

by | Jan 16, 2024 | Fundraising, Jacobs Blog, Summer 2024

In Summer 2023, Jacobs Camp awarded $180,000 in financial assistance to our families. We saw record enrollment numbers with over 600 campers and staff, yet we were still able to maintain our commitment that financial need will never prevent any family from sending their child to Jacobs Camp. We could not have done this without the Jacobs Camp Community’s generous support of our Annual Campaign, and we are so grateful! 

Aside from providing this needed financial assistance, this support also directly funds important facility upgrades and program enhancements that are critical to the long-term success of HSJ. 

One major highlight is that we were able to build a new cabin ahead of last summer. This is a huge win for the future of camp, as it helps us welcome even more new campers in our youngest units.  We were also able to add a serene yoga room, and offer new music workshops and filmmaking activities. 

The culture of generosity in the Jacobs Camp Community is truly what allows us to create an environment where our campers develop strong friendships, live and explore their Jewish identity, and, of course, having TONS of fun! 

If you would like to add your contribution to the over 700 other generous supporters, you can make a gift today!

With your support, we are looking forward to another wonderful summer ahead! Thank you!
