Our Campership Committee is interested in talking to potential first-time campers and their parents to explain the benefits of Jewish summer camps and encourage attendance, including the Union for Reform Judaism’s Goldman Union Camp Institute in Zionsville.
Attending a Jewish summer camp is one of the most important ways to reinforce Jewish identity and community. Temple camperships long have been available to assist needy youngsters who are eligible with a portion of the cost, but we also want to help new and less-experienced campers try a summer home for the spirit.
For information about camperships, contact Chair Dan Zweig. Application forms are available by contacting the Temple office at office@TempleCAV.org or (260) 744-4245. Recipients must be enrolled in the Temple's Religious School to be eligible for consideration. We have a limited amount of campership money, so those applications received by February 29, 2016 will be given first consideration. Other assistance for first-time campers through the Foundation for Jewish Camp can be found at www.onehappycamper.org.
Special discounts are available for Temple members who register their child for GUCI before the end of February 2016. Join us on Sunday, February 7 at 10 a.m. when Camp Director Jeremy Klotz visits the Temple. He will share all the latest news about camp.Temple members who enroll by the end of February are eligible for a $70 discount per child for a two-week session and $100 discount per child for a four-week session.
