Request for Proposal:
Summer Camp for Ukrainian Jews
Apply by 2 JUNE 2023
Last year, thanks to the hard work of our operating partners and the generosity of our funding partners and the Diaspora Affairs and Combating Antisemitism Ministry, we sponsored more than 17,000 days of camp for nearly 1,400 participants at 24 camps spread across 10 different countries. Based on the evaluation of Rosov Consulting, campers and their parents declared that the experience strengthened campers’ desire to participate in more Jewish activities and learn more about Judaism and Israel, all while ensuring they had a fun experience and no longer felt alone.
Sadly, the war is ongoing and Ukrainian Jews remain in need of support. To serve those suffering from the displacement and distress of war, we seek to ensure that Ukrainian Jews resettled or displaced from their homes can take part in enjoyable, restful, and meaningful Jewish experiences this summer.
To that end, we are issuing a new request for proposal through which Jewish camp operators can access financial support and resources for Jewish Ukrainian refugees as well as Jewish participants from Ukraine and for which up to $2 million has been allocated. While in camp, Ukrainian Jewish participants will be involved in enriching activities to strengthen their Jewish identities as well as their connections to Israel and the Jewish people.
We seek to serve Jewish refugees from Ukraine, as well as Jewish participants from Ukraine. Participants can include children, teens, young adults (18-25 years old), and their parents.
Organizations which qualify will receive funding and support. They will be responsible for all aspects of delivering the experience including participant recruitment, staffing, and programming.
Applications can be submitted for five different tracks of programming.
Qualifying programming will offer a fun, engaging, social, and educational experience which connects participants with their Jewish identities and Israel.
Ukrainian Jewish participants may be added into existing Jewish camps or participate in camps designated exclusively for them.
- Providers will receive full funding from Mosaic United per Ukrainian Jewish participant.
- A participant may not participate in more than one budgeted track.
Funding per track per participant
- Day Camp: $45 per day
- Overnight Camp: $80 per day
- Family Camp: $85 per day
- Weekend Retreat / Shabbaton: $95 per day
- Pre-Camp Seminar for Counselors: $85 per day
This initiative is supported by the
Diaspora Affairs and Combating Antisemitism Ministry
