JFS Desert provides scholarships for local boys and girls to attend Jewish summer camps. Scholarships subsidize the cost of attending a Jewish camp and are awarded based on financial need. Priority is given to children who have never had the chance to experience a Jewish summer camp.

JFS Desert is now accepting applications for scholarships for local Jewish youth to attend overnight summer camp. Please see attached campership application for further details.     2018 Application Campership
