Scholarships to Nevada Jewish children and youth, ages 8 to 17, to attend overnight Jewish residential summer camp programs. Scholarships are available based on merit and need and for first-time campers who do not attend Jewish schools during the regular school year.

Jewish Nevada has three overnight summer camp scholarships available:

- First-Time One Happy Camper Grants: For first-time campers, Jewish Nevada is now a proud participating partner of the One Happy Camper Program which provides a scholarship depending on the cost and length of the camp.

- Second-Year Middle-Income One Happy Camper Grants: If the child received a First-Time One Happy Camper Grant the previous year, they may be eligible for a middle-income grant the second year.

- Need-Based Jewish Nevada Scholarship: Jewish Nevada's third overnight scholarship is need-based. Preference will be given to those families whose children are attending overnight camp for the first time, attend public school, or have special needs. In keeping with the primary goal of helping those with the greatest need, scholarships will be awarded strictly on a case-by-case basis.
