"Camp strengthened my commitment to Judaism and encouraged me to get involved with my synagogue and youth group. Those are important, but the thing that I hold closest to me is the relationships I formed at Herzl. Four of my bridesmaids were my cabinmates. Twenty years later, they are still my closest friends. My husband and I met at camp when I was 17. We just celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary and the birth of our third daughter.
I am thankful every day for the donors who made it possible for me to board that bus."
— Dr. Audra Mintz
Why give? Herzl Camp is building a better future for the Jewish people and you can be part of it!
Herzl Camp is an independent non-profit. We do not receive operating support from any Federation, synagogue or other agency. We count on your donations to make our budget each year.
With your support, we provide scholarships to 1 in 4 of our campers, keep tuition at least 10% lower than other Jewish camps, and add powerful programming like our Israeli Camper Program.
Jewish camping is the best predictor of observance and community engagement as an adult. Adults who were campers are 50% more likely to join a synagogue, 90% more likely to join a JCC, twice as likely to contribute to a Federation, and 25% more likely to marry and raise children as Jews.
Herzl Camp is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Besides our gratitude, you'll get a tax-deduction and you'll feel great being part of the magic and power of Herzl Camp!
