Bunk Connect is the newest, most innovative way for income-eligible families to find great summer experiences at highly discounted prices. The program, which matches eligible families with camps offering a limited number of spaces at a 40-60% discount, is specifically designed for families for whom Jewish camp might not be financially feasible—including families with moderate incomes, Jewish day school families, and first-time campers who are not receiving a One Happy Camper grant. NOTE: Bunk Connect opportunities may not be available for all camps and bunks may not become available until the spring
