There will be a pizza lunch provided but feel free to bring your own food if you want.

One Happy Camper grants available now!


 The Greater Lansing Jewish Federation will again be offering stipends to families sending children to Jewish camps.

For Jewish sleep-away camps we will offer up to $200 per week that each child attends, up to a maximum of $600 per child. For Jewish day camps, we will offer up to $100 per week that each child attends, up to a maximum of $200 per child. Maximum per family is $1,200.

Whether your child gets the maximum or less will depend on the availability of funds and how many applicants there are for such funds, with priority given to first-time applicants. 

If interested please send our office,  amyjshapiro6@gmail.com    the following information:

  • Name(s) and address of parents
  • Names of all Children who will be going to camp
  • Name of camp each child will attend
  • Designate each camp as Day camp (D) or Sleep-Away (S), as appropriate
  • Period in which each child will be attending each camp (e.g  July 3-16)
  • Cost of Camp and any subsidies or scholarships received from any other source

We will make our allocations at our April meeting.    In order to be sure of being considered, be sure to get your application to the office by  April 1.  

Those families who receive camp stipends are encouraged, if they have not already done so, to contribute to the Federation’s campaign. You may either do so online via  http://jewishlansing.org/ or by sending a check to
