Generous grants for NEW campers are being offered by the Foundation for Jewish Camp. Their online system will let you know if your camper is eligible. Visit to apply, and enter "Habonim Dror Camp Gilboa" for the camp you want to attend. These grants are NOT need-based. However, they are first-come-first-served, so apply now! 
Contact Gilboa office if you need help with the application.

If you live in Los Angeles County, San Diego County or San Francisco Federation area, One Happy Camper grants are sponsored by the respective Jewish Federations and The Foundation for Jewish Camp.



If you are a new camper but not covered by the incentive grant described above, Gilboa now offers its own "Gilboa Happy Camper". If you've applied via the Foundation's site and were told you are not eligible, give us a call at 323-653-6772, and we can figure out whether you are eligible for Gilboa's grant.

Grants cover: campers from regions not sponsored by a participating Federation and Jewish Day school students.
