Planting the Seeds of Who We Are and What We Value Whether or not we have the stories of our immediate ancestors to tell, so many of us can feel the connections between the generations of our people. These connections call us to preserve our traditions, values and hopes for future generations. But we all know that our modern world is so different from that of our ancestors, or even that of our childhood. Younger generations face a barrage of narratives and ideas through social media and the internet.

Federation Grants Nearly $100,000 to First-time Overnight Campers One Happy Camper shares Federation’s belief that children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes and take on leadership roles in their communities. That’s why, for the past eight years, Federation has partnered with One Happy Camper, a program that facilitates 100% Federation-funded grant distribution for first-year Jewish overnight campers. This year, Federation increased its One Happy Camper allocation from $47,000 to $97,000, providing $50,000 in additional funding for our Northern Virginia families.
