Camp Mountain Chai (CMC) has been nourishing the hearts and souls of Jewish youth for 17 summers. Help us celebrate our Chai (18th) year of camp by purchasing some items off our Rainy Day Amazon Wishlist.  With your support, we can create additional opportunities for campers to build lifelong friendships when they can’t get outside over the summer.

A new matching grant from the Harold Grindspoon Foundation’s Forward Together campaign will increase your contribution by 30%. Now is the time to take advantage of the this match to increase your impact to Camp Mountain Chai.

With this five-year commitment, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation plans to offer additional matching challenge grants to participating organizations in calendar years 2024 through 2027, which camps will be invited to apply for on an annual basis.  The Harold Grinspoon Foundation reserves the right to adjust grant amounts as well as the terms and conditions of future grants.
