Jennifer and Russ Wyatt attended Jewish summer camps as kids. They each worked at the same camp and met there. A few years later, when their daughter, Hannah was old enough to go off to camp herself, Jennifer said “There wasn’t even a question. We didn’t think about Hannah going anywhere other than ‘our’ camp. The thing is, even with financial aid, camp is a large up-front expense.” Jennifer was familiar with JIFLA and so the Wyatt’s approached the agency to help with Hannah’s camp fees.
“Large expenses, like camp fees, are easier to manage when they’re spread out, which JIFLA allows us to do.” said Russ. ‘It allows us to say yes to something we all think is beneficial, and still maintain our budget.”
For her part, Hannah says she really enjoyed camp, especially the horseback riding, arts and crafts, and making friends.
“This is about making experiences possible for Hannah, and for our son Noah when he’s ready,” Russ said. “It really is that simple.”
“Thank you JIFLA for making this experience possible for our family.”
