Make a Legacy Gift to CYJ Midwest


For generations, Camp Young Judaea Midwest has been changing the lives of campers, staff, friends, families, and communities. “You and I will change the world,” the Young Judaea anthem, is a legacy fulfilled in big and small ways every day.


CYJ Midwest has launched our CYJ Forever Legacy Society to ensure future generations can share in this legacy and to give you an opportunity to continue to be a part of our future, forever. You have a relationship with CYJ Midwest and you share in that enduring ruach (spirit) and hold a special place in your heart for what camp did for you or a family member.

A legacy gift to CYJ Midwest helps us:

  • Ensure Jewish kids build strong, proud Jewish identities
  • Strengthen the relationships campers and staff members form with Israel
  • Create a safe, inclusive, and intimate community that feels like family
  • Train Jewish youth for leadership today and tomorrow
Just as camp is a special part of your past, we hope you’ll also make it a part of your future. Hannah Senesh wrote that, “There are stars whose radiance is visible on Earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world even when they are no longer here.” Join us and fill the sky with stars that will forever shine on kids stargazing in a field or singing Havdalah together, as generations of Judaeans have done on inspiring summer evenings.
