PJ Goes to Camp … and You Can, Too!

What a remarkable program! Please pass this on to anyone who you know has kids the right age for sleep away camp! We love being a part of PJ Library and I continue to be impressed by their thoughtfulness in outreach and programming.

PJ Library and FJC's One Happy Camper
PJ Goes to Camp … and You Can, Too!

PJ Goes to Camp offers incentive grants up to $1,000 to PJ Library families who wish to enroll their children in a nonprofit Jewish overnight camp for the first time.

Made possible by the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s One Happy Camper program and theHarold Grinspoon Foundation, this offer is available on a first-come, first-served basis to PJ Library families who might not otherwise be eligible for their community’s One Happy Camper program.

Who Is Eligible?
First-Time Campers, Including:

  • Current PJ Library subscribers who enrolled in the program on or before Sept. 1, 2011.
  • Siblings of current PJ Library subscribers who enrolled in the program on or before Sept. 1, 2011.
  • All PJ Library alumni

For further eligibility requirements please visit the PJ Goes to Camp webpage(www.pjlibrary.org/pjgtc).

Which Camps Are Included?
Participating Camps Include:

  • Any of the 155+ non-profit Jewish overnight camps in North America listed on FJC’s website, www.onehappycamper.org.
These opportunities apply to:

  • Summer 2012.
  • Campers attending camp for at least 19 consecutive days (or at least 12 consecutive days if in the 13 Western States).
What Is the Value of the Incentive Grant?
The grants will be awarded as follows:

  • $1,000 for a 19 consecutive day or longer session (North America).
  • $700 for a 12 consecutive day session (only for camps located in the 13 Western States).
How Do I Apply?
Go online to:

  • Explore FJC’s site (www.onehappycamper.org) to find a Jewish camp that best suits your family’s needs and your child’s interests. 

    PLEASE REMEMBER: You must register your child for camp prior to applying for a grant.

  • Register for a PJ Goes to Camp/One Happy Camper incentive grant at www.onehappycamper.org and enter the PJ Library referral codePJGTC20121A at the beginning of your online application.

    (PJ Library children fortunate enough to live in communities whose Federations sponsor a One Happy Camper program will receive a grant from their community sponsor rather than a PJ Goes to Camp grant.)

There are only 100 grants for campers who currently attend Jewish Day schools. To learn more, please contact Kirstin at Kirstin@hgf.org or your local PJ Library Program Professional.

PJ Library® is a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
