Why Give 2 Camp

Camp Tevya 2013Camp Tevya, a Cohen Camp, builds a warm and spirited community infused with Jewish values, nurturing lifelong confidence, caring and forever-friendships. Our campers develop strong character and gain life skills as they grow spiritually, socially and physically, So many of us become “ourselves” here, and we cherish the results for our lives, our families and our communities for decades.

You can help. In return, you’ll get deep satisfaction in knowing you are sustaining and growing one of the most transformative experiences of a child’s life.

The Cohen Camps are an independent non-profit. Our independence is part of our strength: campers get all the passion and personality of a family-run institution, along with the three camps’ common vision and commitment to collaboration. We do not receive operating support from any Federation, synagogue or other agency.

Camp Tevya relies on the philanthropic support of dozens of individuals, families and organizations. You can support:

  • The Camp Tevya Scholarship Fund, which assists Tevya campers and Tevya families return each year
  • The Tevya WOW Fund, which adds powerful new resources like our Tevya videography program this year
  • Where it’s needed most, a resource that helps us add to the Tevya funds above, reward and retain top-quality Tevya staff, keep up our cherished Tevya facilities and more.

You can make a gift:

  • In honor of a Tevya counselor or staff team who created an amazing experience for your child this year. We will ensure that your honoree knows that this experience meant so much to you.
  • In appreciation for a Tevya program your child loves
  • To recognize occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, B’nei Mitzvot, marriages, graduations, and other celebrations. We will acknowledge this gift to your honoree.
  • To provide the best possible campus for Camp Tevya. Naming opportunities available.
  • As a permanent legacy for you or your family as part of your estate planning through a Bequest, Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Remainder Trust, or Gift of Life Insurance.

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.
