The Jewish Federation’s Tour de Summer Camps is a community cycling and hiking event that will raise significant funds to send more of our kids to Jewish summer camp, helping them build a lifelong connection to Jewish identity and values. Cyclists and adventurers of all kinds (from beginner to expert level) will take on the challenge of a 18-mile, 36-mile, 62-mile (Metric Century), or 100-mile (Century) ride and ask friends, family, and coworkers to sponsor them in their fundraising efforts! Anyone can participate – young and old – but you must be 16 years or older to ride. If you are under 16, will be out of town or don’t ride a bike consider being a Virtual Rider or participating in the 1, 3 or 6 mile hike. The goal of Tour de Summer Camps is to provide means for every child who wants to attend Jewish summer camp to do so. All proceeds from the ride will support summer camp scholarships to give more kids that lifelong connection to Judaism that only Jewish summer camp can provide, which will in turn help us ensure the Jewish future—one of The Jewish Federation’s top priorities.
