We are grateful for the support of current and alumni Camp Yavneh families including grandparents and staff. With your help, we are able to continue offering a thrilling overnight summer program steeped in Jewish tradition, that’s centered on our K’lal Israel mission. Make an immediate impact today; as a non-profit 501(3)c, your gift is tax deductible.
Our annual campaign supports our greatest immediate needs:
- Robust programming including athletics, aquatics, dance, theatre, arts in our Omanut, music, and so much more.
- Minor facility upgrades to the Agam (waterfront), bunks and community areas.
- Critical tuition affordability programs that ensure a diverse camper population. We’re proud that we awarded more than $210,000 in aid last year to families otherwise unable to send their children to Yavneh.
- Excellent staff focused on nurturing a love and curiosity of Judaism and passion for Israel.
Your donation helps support these amazing initiatives and programs.
Directed Scholarship Funds
More than 25% of our campers require a scholarship to attend our summer program. Your donation to the Scholarship Fund ensures our camper population will remain diverse so that children from a variety of backgrounds can experience the magic of Yavneh.
Our Na’aleh Israel summer program is an exhilarating educational experience for our oldest campers. The program is cost prohibitive for some families that require financial aid to send their teens to this life changing program.
Derech Dov Pathway – A Meaningful way to Honor Someone at Yavneh
Brick on Derech Dov Pathway
In 2010, The Derech Dov Pathway was built in honor of our beloved teacher and spiritual leader of over 15 years, Rabbi Dov Lerea. This brick path provides a special way for our community to honor and/or remember loved ones and commemorate milestones. The path is in front of our new Beit Midrash, The Gottesman Community Center, and community flag pole garden. Placing a brick on Derech Dov Pathway is a permanent mark on Yavneh and costs $180 for a standard size and $360 for double sized brick.
Consider underwriting programs that make Yavneh a unique experience.
We do our best to keep exceeding our camper’s expectations and each summer we consider adding new enrichment specialists, unique and fun equipment for campers, and creative programs and courses that will enhance the Yavneh Experience. Last year, we installed the outdoor Kanga-ruach jumper and this year we hope to continue installing more fun items at camp.
