Summer camp fosters Jewish identity and creates a life-long bond with the Jewish community. While whispering after lights out, creating bunk traditions, or gathering to welcome Shabbat, Jewish children experienced Jewish community that was vibrant, celebratory, and fun!

To make these summers a reality, the Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation provides non-need-based scholarships for first time campers (up to $1,250). Need-based assistance is also available to attend after the first year. 

For Jewish teens that have aged out of being a camper but still want a Jewish summer experience, the MKJF offers scholarships for Jewish "Teen Experiences"(examples include BBYO Summer Experiences, Adamah Adventures Teen Treks or Camp Tawonga Adventure Quests). The MKJF also offers an "Israel Experience" scholarship to encourage Jewish high school students to visit Israel. These non-need-based scholarships are available to teens in grades 10 - 12.

The MKJF is one resource for summer youth programs. Contact our office at 686-4741 for more information online, you can visit www.jewishcamp.org/camps or info.com for info about camps and teen programs.

Yachad, a group of Jewish singles, couples, and the "young-at-heart," meets monthly (or so) in a casual social setting so members can form their own social networks and feel more comfortable attending community events. Now in its ninth year, this dinner/social group continues going strong. Yachad is an "outreach" group with members of all ages and is open to anyone who would like to attend! Newcomers are especially welcome.

Food, fun and friends keep Yachad going strong!

Café Chevre (Friendship Café) is our monthly lunch and education program, open to all who enjoy good company, lunch and an interesting program.

Remember! Café Chevre is "not for seniors only" ... everyone is always welcome! We're always looking for fun and educational programs for Café Chevre...all suggestions are appreciated.

The MKJF sponsors educational, cultural, and social programming to deepen and broaden the Jewish opportunities available in south central Kansas. We sponsor concerts, films, speakers, and special events throughout the year.

There's always something going on at the MKJF!
