What is Tour de Summer Camps?
The Jewish Federation’s Tour de Summer Camps is a cycling event that raises significant funds to send more kids to Jewish summer camp. Collaboratively, The Jewish Federation’s Tour de Summer Camps helps local families offset the cost of Jewish summer camp and give more children the opportunity to explore their Jewish identity’s and create a lifelong connection to the Jewish community!
Last year the Jewish Federation’s Tour de Summer Camp was able to raise $1.2 million to give more kids the chance to experience Jewish summer camp! Research tells us that kids who have attended Jewish summer camp are much more likely to identify as Jewish when they are adults and be involved in the Jewish community. The Jewish Federation’s Tour de Summer Camp’s goal is to provide more children with this experience that lasts a lifetime!
