One Happy Camper

One Happy Camper Toronto (OHC) awards an incentive grant of up to $1,000 to first-time campers attending Jewish overnight camp.* OHC is an outreach program intended to increase the number of first-time campers attending Jewish overnight camp. The grant is limited to campers residing in the GTA in order to enhance affiliation and build community.

 *Space is limited; grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

 

Eligibility

The following requirements apply to campers who may be eligible for a One Happy Camper Toronto grant:

  • Camper must currently be residing in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) 
  • First-time camper must be entering grades 2-12 AFTER camp
  • Enrolled with one of the OHC Toronto partner camps (see list below)
NEW FOR SUMMER 2019:  Enrolled with one of the OHC Toronto partner camps for at least 12+ consecutive days. 
  • If your child is enrolled in a 12-18 day session, he/she will receive a grant of $700
  • If your child is enrolled in a 19+ day session, he/she will receive a grant of $1000
 
PLEASE NOTE:  The first child in a family to receive an OHC Toronto grant will be eligible to receive the full grant ($700 or $1000, depending on session length); subsequent siblings will receive $500 regardless of the length of their enrolled session. This applies to twins and siblings attending camp for the first time during the same summer and past grant recipients.
 
FOR SUMMER 2019 ONLY:
If your child has previously attended Jewish overnight camp for a 12-18 day session and has not received the OHC grant, he/she is eligible for the grant this year.  The amount of the grant will depend on the length of the session he/she is enrolled in for Summer 2019.
