NorCal Jewish Summer Camps

TBT also offers funding support for Jewish summer camps, and there may be funding available through the Federation as well. Scholarships through Temple Beth Torah are made available through the Heather Citron Fund and the Sara and Elliot Lewis Fund. Additional scholarships are made possible by the Women of Temple Beth Torah and the Debby Kaplan Fund. To apply, please pick-up a form in the office or request that it be emailed to you. All requests for financial aid will be addressed with compassion and confidentiality. The scholarship application deadline is Sunday, 2/28/21. Please note that if your child has never attended a Jewish summer camp before, there is an organization called One Happy Camper that provides financial assistance up to $1000. Click here for more information.
