Most camps want you to give a deposit to a camp session by February of that year. And our committee needs time to evaluate all the applications that come in to the office.

The following is an excerpt of a letter written by one of our scholarship recipients, who attended the JCC Maccabi Games for Basketball one summer. He had a great time and your child can too.


“My experience at the JCC Maccabi Games in Orange County was truly a tremendous opportunity. The magnitude of the games was incredible. As all of the Jewish athletes walked on the big stage at the opening ceremony, our faces lit up. We walked through the arch and realized the amazing journey ahead. Our journey included passionate competition and new friendships in a Jewish environment. The Games had officially begun.”
