Russian-Speaking Jewish Camp Grants

Special Camp Grants Program for Russian-Speaking Jewish Campers

A scholarship is available for campers from the Russian-speaking Jewish community attending a Jewish camp.


This grant is available through a partnership between the Foundation for Jewish Camp, the Genesis Philanthropy Group, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and the Jewish Education Center. Cleveland is one of the first communities to have been offered this partnership.


Greater Cleveland-area campers with at least one Russian-speaking grandparent or parent are eligible for the grant, which is for up to $2,000 per camper. Priority will be given to first and second time campers. Both overnight campers and day campers are eligible.


This way to an unforgettable summer. At Jewish overnight camp, kids discover who they are – and who they want to become – while having the time of their lives. They try out new things and find the best version of themselves. Furthermore, Jewish overnight camp provides the opportunity to connect with Jewish peers and role models.
