Camp Nageela Midwest was founded with the goal of creating an inclusive Jewish camp for kids from all backgrounds and experiences. Camp Nageela Midwest is dedicated to securing financial assistance to help this become a reality.
We are very happy to inform you that the application for 2013 camper incentive grants has opened. Camp Nageela Midwest urges all first and second time campers to apply. Most first year campers are eligible for a grant of $1000, regardless of financial need. In some areas, second year campers also receive $750. Please visit www.onehappycamper.org to apply now.
Illinois Residents- the Campership Incentive Program is now only offering first time camper grants in the amount of $1000.
Chicagoland Residents- The Jewish Federation awards coupons to children when attending Jewish Preschool, Jewish Day School and Jewish Day Camp ($120 each, total per kid of up to $360) that can be redeemed towards a child's first-time Jewish overnight camp experience. Please contact the Federation at 312-346-6700.
We recommend that all families requiring financial assistance check with their local Jewish Federation. Many Federations have allocated funds to help send local residents to Jewish residential camp. Find your local Jewish Federation by clicking here . For families living in the Chicagoland area, please apply to the Camp Nageela Midwest Scholarship Fund. Camp Nageela will then send qualifying applications to the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago for additional assistance.
Camp Nageela also recommends that all families contact their synagogue or temple, as many have funds for camp scholarships.
Camp Nageela Midwest is committed to raising additional funds to provide financial assistance to camp families. Please complete the Camp Nageela Scholarship Application and submit along with the necessary paperwork by March 1, 2013
