Giving to Tel Noar

Special Projects + Recognition of Generosity

Leadership giving that makes a lasting difference​

Camp Tel Noar is honored to recognize the initiative and leadership of donors who have been inspired by a cause or a member of the Tel Noar community. You have brought others together with your vision and caring. Thank you for your meaningful tribute to the power of camp–and the gifts you have made to support future campers. 

Archives at Tel Noar

The Alumni Archives

Ready by Spring 2023! Step into the Alumni Archives, with its gorgeous alumni-painted mural, to gather and reminisce while you are at camp. Located at the back of the stage in the Rec Hall, the Archives will be full of memorabilia, camp yearbooks, photos, and memories. Show your kids what camp looked like when you were a camper, or lounge in the cozy chairs while you swap stories with your oldest friends. Sharon Lasky and Sandi Dunn are curating the displays. Do you have any photos or items to add? Please email Sharon!

The $36,000 JCamp180 Chai Match Challenge

JCamp180, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, challenged donors to Camp Tel Noar, among just 18 camps, to its coveted Chai Match opportunity. An extraordinary group of generous donors raised $108,000 in pledges and gifts by March 18, 2018–securing the $36,000 match! We are so deeply grateful.

The Chai Match funding is providing substantial support to add new seating and a stage to Tel Noar’s hillside chapel.

With the Chai Match funding as its starting point, Tel Noar intends to enhance the outdoor gathering space for a wide array of community events. Community is at Tel Noar’s heart. Beside our sparking lake, we’ll celebrate Shabbat—and add reflective, memorable, fun possibilities for so much more: Moonlit movies. Concerts. Talent shows. Alumni reunions. Picture your new favorite, peaceful, energizing place at Camp Tel Noar. 

The new space is going through the local permitting process. We hope to resolve the timeline for approvals very soon.
