laine Eizelman isn't sure
what she is going to do
about her 8-year-old daugh-
ter's desire to go to Camp
Tamarack but she knows she has
to make a decision soon.
Like many single parents, the
issue for her is funding.
"One of the reasons she didn't
go last year is that it wasn't in the
budget," said Ms. Eizelman, a
Huntington Woods resident. "I
am not sure that won't be the
case this year."
With the cost for one two-week
overnight session in some in-
stances being the same as a full
summer of day camp, many sin-
gle parents are opting for the lat-
ter, making sure they get the
most time for their money while
still offering something Jewish to
Other single parents opt to go
on family vacations because they
are reluctant to give up precious
time allotted through custody
Still more single parents face
ex-spouses who will not help pay
for camp either because they
are not Jewish or do not put the
same value on the camp experi-
Although each situation is dif-
ferent, the message single par-
ents want heard is that while
camp is a valuable experience, it
is also a difficult proposition.
"Camp is an extremely impor-
tant way of providing a Jewish
experience for children and it is
harder to provide that experience
if you are a single parent," said
Lynda Giles, a board member of
Jewish Experiences For Families
who helped found the Institute
for Single Jewish Mothers.
Julia Greenblatt, JEFF pro-
gram coordinator, said its Insti-
tute for Single Jewish Mothers
acts as an advocate for the single
parents who are seeking help in
the Jewish community.
"It is our belief that the Jew-
ish community cares and
wants to help," Ms. Greenblatt
Ms. Greenblatt said the insti-
tute aspires to help single par-
ents in their search to provide a
camp experience. She frequent-
ly makes calls to find funding al-
ternatives such as scholarships
to make it easier for the families
to participate in camp and oth-
Although help is out there for
some single parents, money and
time are still the issues.
Elaine Eizelman feels her
daughter is ready for the camp
experience. The girl has spoken
of little else for the past few
"She really wants to go," Ms.
Eizelman said. "I hope she will,
but we'll see."
