The Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) has launched a new, national program that matches eligible families with high-quality nonprofit Jewish summer camps at a more affordable price.
BunkConnect has launched nationally with 75 participating camps, representing various movements and denominations. The program is for first-time campers, basing eligibility on a family’s adjusted gross income, number of dependent children, and place of legal residency.
After income-eligible families supply some basic, confidential information into the program’s online system, the system matches them with available camp sessions at low introductory rates (between 40% and 60% off list prices). This initiative is modeled after the success of FJC’s One Happy Camper program – a need-blind grant initiative for first-time campers.
