Mini Camp Tov

It is a two-day program that takes Jewish teens around Chicagoland to several agencies to participate in a variety of hands-on volunteering projects. From combatting hunger and homelessness, to caring for the environment, to brightening a young child's day when they are sick, Mini Camp TOV is a unique opportunity to make a difference.

The program cost covers transportation, a camp t-shirt, water bottle, two kosher snacks daily, programming and materials. Teens should bring a kosher-style bagged lunch both days. $18 of the program cost will be donated to JUF's Annual Campaign.
