It goes without saying that the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted plans on all fronts. This certainly includes summer camps. The Jewish Federation of Western CT is very aware of the hardship that this disruption is causing for many families.
We would like to bring to your attention a virtual summer day camp which through the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) we have discovered Camp Ben Frankel. To learn more please visit www.campbenfrankel.org for the most up to date information on pricing, dates, activities, news, and videos. In lieu of traditional campership grants, our Federation will pay up to 50% of camp costs, not to exceed $250 per child. This campership grant applies to all camps that comply with state regulations.
Camps must reflect the values of the Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut as outlined in its mission statement.
This year’s campership grant process is as follows:
- Parents will apply to the camp.
- Payment will be made directly to the camp by parents.
- The Jewish Federation will reimburse the parent up to 50% of camp costs, not to exceed $250 per child, upon presentation of a paid receipt.
The Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut remains committed to campership and support of our families in these difficult and often perplexing times. Please email Cathy Conti at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203-267-7111 x 310 with any questions that you may have.
