New York, NY, December 14, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- What is the Campership Incentive Program (CIP)? The Campership Incentive Program (CIP) seeks to increase the number of Jewish children enjoying transformative experiences at Jewish overnight summer camp. This is done by providing financial incentives to first-time campers who are not currently participating in an immersive daily Jewish experience.
The Foundation for Jewish Camp, in partnership with dozens of Jewish community federations, camps and camp movements across North America, provides incentive grants of $1,000 to first-time campers who attend a nonprofit Jewish overnight camp. Camp sessions must last 19 consecutive days.
What are the eligibility requirements for applicants? Eligibility is based on several factors: where you live, past camp experience and the grade your camper is currently in. These factors are ultimately determined by your local sponsoring agency, but in general, eligibility requirements that are adhered to by the majority of partners are as follows:
Campers must have never previously attended a nonprofit Jewish overnight camp for 19 consecutive days or longer before applying for the grant. (Note some local programs may require zero past camp experience)
Campers must be attending a camp listed on the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s website. SLC is one of them.
Campers must be attending camp for 19 consecutive days or longer.
First-time campers must not be currently enrolled in a daily immersive Jewish experience like day school or yeshiva.
