The Len & Judy Elikan Camp Scholarship Fund

 

The Len & Judy Elikan Camp Scholarship Fund of the Jewish Foundation offers overnight summer camp scholarship awards for teens who are seen as potential leaders of the next generation in the Jewish community. A Jewish overnight camp is a place to learn new skills, to have fun, and to meet new friends with whom you share your ideas about Judaism and life. Jewish camp is a place where many become proud and committed Jews, though they may not have had that goal in mind when deciding to go. Many go on to become leaders in their community – a great byproduct. However, the first objective is the most important one: for each youth who attends to have a great summer experience in a Jewish environment.
