Colel Chabad Summer Camps
For most children summer camp is a small luxury for both parent and child. Parents get a break and children enjoy a wonderful camping experience.
For children of single-parent homes summer camp is not a luxury it is a necessity. The single parent must work to put food on the table.
These children would be left to their own devices, often on the most dangerous streets where juvenile crime is rampant and there is nothing constructive to do.
For Israel's neediest children who live in urban squalor, summer camp is the only safe refuge from dangerous streets and even more dangerous boredom.
Every summer, Colel Chabad provides scholarships that send hundreds of these children to summer camps where they can enjoy a few weeks of healthy play and fresh air.
