Friends of CYJ Annual Giving

The founders of CYJ-Texas dreamed of an inclusive camp, a place where kids of all backgrounds could grow, have fun, and nurture their Jewish and Zionist identities. But the dream would only be realized if all children could enjoy it, regardless of their family’s financial means.


Camp’s “Friends of CYJ” campaign is our first resource for enhancing and expanding our summer offerings. Funds gathered here are initially used to provide tuition assistance to camp families seeking aid. Year after year, this fund provides the aid that so many kids rely on to make camp a possibility. Even today, a significant portion of our children couldn’t enroll without the kindness of the CYJ supporters.

When those families are accommodated, we direct these donations toward our programming. The Friends of CYJ Fund helps add the wow to camp each summer with stronger camp programs and improved training for our madrichim.
