The Foundation for Jewish Camping announced a $1 million scholarship program for young Chicago Jews to attend Jewish summer camps. The anonymous gift will help pay camp tuition for families of first-time and second-year returning campers. Members of participating synagogues are eligible for $1,250 for first-time campers and $750 for second-year returning campers attending programs that are at least three weeks long at nonprofit Jewish summer camps.
