Camp Max Strauss taking applications for low-cost Chanukah sleep-away

Camp Max Strauss, which is holding a four-night sleep-away Chanukah camp at a very low cost for children of families in need, is still accepting applications for this year’s camp, which will take place Dec. 18-22.

Camp Max Strauss partners with the Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters program, which provides young-adult mentors for young Jewish children in working-class and single-parent homes. The four-night camp for ages 7 to 14, costs $200 per child; families in need of financial assistance should apply for camperships. 

Located in Glendale, Camp Max Strauss provides transportation to and from camp, sports activities, arts and crafts, cooking classes, Judaica classes and sing-alongs with Jewish song leaders and rabbis.
