As you can see from this website, Camp Hatikvah offers an impressive program. What is important to know, however, is that none of what you see would be possible without our donors. While camp fees cover things like our counselling staff, food, insurance and site maintenance, everything else - including every building on site and almost every piece of equipment we have - was made possible only through donor support. 

Summer camps are expensive - and our camp is no exception - but we are proud to state that on a per-day basis, Camp Hatikvah is typically one of the least expensive Jewish camps in North America. Maintaining this reputation and reality for our families is one of the most important responsibilities of our board of directors and the key tenant of all of our strategic planning. 

 

Why is this so important to us? 

 

Because living an engaged Jewish life is costly and many of our families are really struggling with affordability. Our pricing model is simple; camp fees should cover the cost of caring for our campers and operating the facilities. Beyond that, if the camp wishes to make improvements to our site our program offerings, it is the responsibility of our volunteer board to seek donor support from our community. Fortunately for us, we have a very generous donor base who understands the value of Jewish camping. Through their support, we are able to offer an enviable program, in spectacular facilities, at price that allows us to be inclusive of our financially diverse camp community.
