It may be winter, but camp is already on many of our minds! PJ Library, PJ Our Way, and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) are proud to help kids experience Jewish overnight camp for the first time. PJ Goes to Camp partners with the One Happy Camper initiative to provide up to $1000 to help your kids enjoy the magic of camp. Increasing attendance at Jewish Camps is a goal of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, which is why in partnership with the Foundation for Jewish Camps (FJC), they have designed a program to encourage families to send their children to Jewish overnight camp for the first time. More than 150 non-profit Jewish overnight camps in North America are listed on the Foundation for Jewish Camp's website

First-time campers who are PJ Library or PJ Our Way recipients, siblings, or PJ Alumni, who were participants in PJ Library or PJ Our Way as of September 1, 2016, and attend either Public School or a non-Jewish private school, are eligible. Other restrictions may apply. Applicants who are approved may receive $700 for sessions of 12-18 days, and $1000 for camp sessions of 19 days or longer. Full eligibility requirements are described at . Enrolling is easy - decide on a camp to attend, get a referral code by completing an access code request at:, then visit  to begin your PJ Goes to Camp enrollment process.
