What is The Weekender?

Have your child spend a weekend at camp for FREE!

 

The Weekender is an innovative program sponsored by the Silber Family Jewish Camp Fund. It allows families with children entering Grades 1 to 6 to get a taste of Jewish summer camp.  Each child will get to spend 2-3 days at one of our participating camps and enjoy a full weekend of activities and programs absolutely free! 

 

Why register for the Weekender?

The experience of summer camp is invaluable. The benefits expand from making lifelong friendships, independence, discovering new passions, and even setting new goals to achieve. Each child has a different experience and every camper remembers the first time they went to a sleepaway camp.

 

We know that going away to a sleepaway camp for the first time can be intimidating for both children and parents. The thought of spending time away from home may be scary for first timers. That is why we designed the Weekender in a way that would introduce campers and parents to Jewish camping in a safe, inviting, and comfortable environment. ​

 

 

It is a great opportunity for any family and child that would like to try out the camp experience - and It is FREE! All expenses will be covered by the program including food and transportation to and from the camp.   ​ 

 

The Weekender program for summer 2017 is currently sold out. Camps will still accept waitlist registration requests.
