I owe it all to Camp Judaea and I’ll repay it the best I can.

Thanks to the continued generous support of the Bernie Marcus Foundation, Camp Judaea will receive a dollar to dollar match on all scholarship donations up to $30,000. Donate today, double your impact, and help send a child to Camp Judaea. Here's a letter from one donor on why he supports CJ Scholarships:

There are three things in this world that I love, my mother, Camp Judaea, and the Florida Gators.

Without Camp’s help I wouldn’t be the person I am today with the lifelong friends I have today.

At first my friends from camp were called “camp friends”. We would mail letters to each other, real letters, stamps and everything! I don’t know at what point they just became best friends or when those letters turned into e-mails, but they did.

It may have been in college when my roommates David Salmon and Jordan Rubinstein were also my bunkmates from Bogrim.

It may have been in Kesher when I used to keep Merekezet Sandra on her toes! (that’s Pre-Director Sandra!)

Or it honestly may have been my first day at camp when I played hockey with Jordan and David, and I just didn’t know it yet.

As I grow older my friendships grow stronger. I owe it all to Camp Judaea and I’ll repay it the best I can. So every time a Judaean gets married (especially Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Taub, he’s the reason I went to camp) every time a new future camper is born, every time I can, I make a donation. With my help I know it means another camper will get to go to camp, new friends will be made, and maybe he or she will get to raise the flag at flag pole because man, I loved doing that!
