$1000 Incentive Grants for Campers from Small Jewish Communities

For 96 years, Camp Chi has transformed children’s summers.

We unplug them from the stress of their daily lives and plug them into life-changing moments. A soccer player takes the stage. An artist reaches the high ropes. Everyone becomes fluent in kindness and friendship. And the camp becomes a community as they celebrate Shabbat and discover the spirit of Israel has a home in Lake Delton, Wisconsin.

Available to First-Time Chi Campers

  • Attend 2, 3 or 4 week sessions
  • Campers entering 4th-10th grades
  • Grants awarded regardless of economic need
  • Additional needs-based scholarship may be available
  • Other savings available for campers traveling more than 500 miles to camp

Some first-time campers attending 3+ weeks may qualify to save an additional $1000 through One Happy Camper.
