“My countdown to next summer starts the day I get home from camp”, Rachel (age 11)

 “Capital Camps is where I feel most connected to the Jewish community”, Ari (age 14)

 “My camp friends are truly my lifelong friends”, David (3rd year counselor)

These statements ring true now, even as they did when the first campers joined us in 1988!  As alumni, we know the power of a Capital Camps summer and we want to help provide this incredible experience for others.

Join us as we kickstart our Send a Kid to Camp Alumni Campaign on "Giving Tuesday", November 27, 2012 through December 31, 2012.  Together, will provide a child with the summer of a lifetime. You can help in two ways:

1) make your personal gift and spread the word

2) help fundraise for the Kids for Capital Camps Campaign. Set a personal goal ($180) and ask ten friends to contribute $18 or more. 

Our confidential scholarship program provided $280,000 to 124 children last summer alone, and the demand continues to grow.  Any amount, no matter how large or small, will make a difference in the life of a Jewish child for whom a camp experience would be out of reach.
