Engagement Opportunities for Our Alumni

Giving back to camp is a powerful statement about the impact Capital Camps has made on your life and the ability to do for others.

Become a monthly mensch, supporting camp throughout the year. Giving to Capital Camps ensures that all children have the opportunity to experience an impactful summer. Donations support critical elements of our program including financial aid, our unique inclusion (Atzma’im) program and important Jewish identity building.

One-time donations are also critically important to ensure that we can continue to provide quality leadership development and programming to nurture individual growth and strengthen our vibrant Jewish community.

To learn more about how you can support Capital Camps & Retreat Center through Annual Giving, Capital gifts, Endowments, and Legacy pledges, please contact Havi Goldscher, Chief Development Officer 240-283-6153
