When you support Gilboa's scholarship fund, it means that every child who wants to come to camp can come to camp.
Our recent alumni are out doing remarkable work in the world: as teachers and mentors, as artists, in social work, and for unions and progressive nonprofits.
We won’t take all the credit, but we believe that conversations, mentorship, and opportunities to realize dreams at Gilboa are important steps along the journey to this work so typical of Gilboa alumni.
Can you contribute to help the next generation of change-makers learn and grow at Gilboa this summer?
Gilboa knows that every young person has the potential to make a positive impact on our world. At camp we learn empathy, critical thinking, and a drive toward action that turns potential into reality!
We hope you’ll join in our pride and help make camp accessible so that our community can nurture the potential of youth, regardless of their means.
Your contributions directly impact our community by developing future leaders like Clara, Daniel, and Sophie.
My experience growing up at Gilboa instilled in me at a young age the principles of social justice based on how we engaged with themes of gender, race, privilege, and power. It taught me to think critically and want to be part of motivating change. This is something that is so core to who I am and the work that I do in many areas of my life, and I am grateful to have had such great exposure and education as a camper and counselor at Gilboa.

So much about growing up at Gilboa - learning about capitalism as a kid in PISH, having Yom Meyuchad about exploitation in the cruise industry, and singing "Union Maid" during shira - made me care about organized labor!
CLARA Research Assistant for the United Food and Commercial Workers
In my free time I mentor a high school robotics team, Pioneer Highschool FIRST Robotics Team 668, working to create equality of educational opportunities and spreading STEM education to more people.
I was inspired to volunteer as a robotics mentor in part because of my wonderful experiences as a Madrich.
