Summer of Smiles
A Jewish camping experience is fundamental and life-shaping.
Each year, JCC Chicago receives hundreds of requests for financial support from families deeply impacted by job loss, illness, divorce, children with special needs, or other difficult life circumstances. The JCC Women’s Board is committed to ensuring that every family who wants and needs a JCC Chicago camp experience will be served regardless of their ability to pay.
Help put a smile on a child’s face and make a real difference in his or her life by contributing to the Summer of Smiles campaign.
Be our Friend
At JCC day camps throughout Chicago and the suburbs, and at Camp Chi in Wisconsin, lifelong friendships are made, and Jewish traditions are celebrated. Learn more about the work we do to support JCC Chicago by becoming a Friend of the Women’s Board.
A Tribute Card is a wonderful way to honor a loved one’s memory, wish a friend a speedy recovery, rejoice in a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, acknowledge a child’s naming/dedication, wish a couple Mazel Tov on their wedding or anniversary, or celebrate any simcha. Your kindness will support the Summer of Smiles campaign..
