Help Secure Our Future

We need our camp communities more than ever. The financial ramifications of not being able to run camp this summer are significant.

Camp extends beyond physical locations and buildings. It dwells in our hearts and lasting friendships, our values, and our souls. As we face this challenge, we are strengthened by our camps’ vibrant community that has shaped Jewish lives for generations, l’dor vador.

We hope that we can count on our camp community to say Hineini, I am here. Please help us look forward to Summer 2021 and beyond by giving to our Hineini 2020 Fund. Every dollar, no matter the amount, helps secure the future of our camps. You can choose to support one or all three of our URJ Northeast Camps.

Say Hineini

Maximize your match!

If you are a current parent interested in supporting camp, we ask that you leverage your dollars and convert some or all of your tuition since any tuition that is donated is matched $1 for every $1 donated. We will be sending you more instructions very soon on how you can convert your tuition to our Hineini 2020 Fund.

All other supporters can use our giving page to support the Hineini 2020 Fund directly. All donations made using our giving page will be eligible for a $1 match for every $2 donated.

If you need additional information on how to best leverage your gift for the Harold Grinspoon Foundation match please contact, Kadie Black at kblackl@urj.org

Give the gift of camp!

When you invest in Eisner Camp you're ensuring campers and staff have the opportunity to become the best versions of themselves and deliver the values of camp back home to our families and friends, college campuses, congregations and communities. These opportunities will enhance each person, who steps through camps gates, to develop friendships, leadership skills, and Jewish identity.

Whether you choose to invest in our Scholarship Fund, Annual Fund or Chai Monthly Giving, you are living our mission and saying Hineini – Here I am.

Giving to the Eisner Camp community the opportunity to live Jewishly and create their Jewish identity with friends, family, laughter, curiosity, and love on our beautiful grounds, in sacred surroundings is an investment in the Jewish future.

These pivotal Jewish camp experiences create generations of teens, young adults and adults engaged in Jewish life, support Jewish causes, and leading their communities.

 

ANNUAL FUND

Make it possible for future generations of young people to benefit from our kehilah kedoshah (sacred community) through scholarship, improving facilities, programmatic excellence and leadership training. Learn more.

SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS

Eisner and Crane Lake Camps are committed to ensuring that every child regardless of financial situations, have the ability to experience the magic of Jewish summer camp. Thanks to our generous donors, over 370 campers can depend on scholarship assistance. With the help of our congregational and foundation partners, around 40% of our campers receive some form of additional support.

COMMEMORATIVE BRICKS

Make a lasting impression on camp by purchasing a commemorative brick in memory or honor of you, your camper or your loved ones! A commemorative brick is a wonderful way to celebrate a simcha or the legacy of a camp family. The bricks at Eisner Camp will be prominently displayed in our Beit T’fillah (house of prayer).

TREE OF LIFE LEAVES

The Eisner Camp Tree of Life plaque is a permanent tribute plaque that creates an enduring honor to someone special, through the purchase of a personalized leaf on a large plaque prominently displayed in our chadar ochel (dining hall). Purchasing a leaf commemorates your families continued dedication to the growth and longevity of our camp community. The tree of life leaf ensures your caring tribute will be displayed forever at Eisner Camp

CHAI GIVING CIRCLE

Our Chai Circle is a group of faithful supporters of Eisner and Crane Lake Camps who provide monthly support to ensure no camper is turned away due to financial situations. A recurring gift gives camp the dependable support it needs to plan further into the future. Learn more.
