WHAT IS AN ENDOWMENT FUND? An endowment fund is a

permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested and each year a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose. Any earnings are used to build the market value of the fund and support its goal in perpetuity.



HOW IS THE DISTRIBUTION FROM A FUND USED? The spending distribution from each endowment fund is used to support the purpose as specified in the endowment agreement between the donor and Levine Academy.



NEW IN 2019! Summer@Levine is our newest camp program full of choices and experiences for campers age 6-12. Our amazing camp directors, Helene Berke and Marco Rodriguez, designed weekly camp programs and ran an amazingly successful inaugural summer for this new Levine program. Each week the campers chose an activity in the morning and a different experience in the afternoon. The large variety of options available included art, sports, magic, cooking, robotics, and more! Throughout the week, campers bonded while developing critical thinking skills in STEM electives or burning energy in sports, and Fridays campers went on an experiential field trip around the Metroplex. The goal of Summer@ Levine was to create knowledge and experiences to last a lifetime!

Camp Shemesh emphasized individual growth by providing each child the opportunity to contribute and grow within a group setting. Our amazing camp director, Dana Shidlofsky, personally designed weekly camps for children ages 3 months to rising Kindergartners. We fostered positive feelings and Jewish ideals in a warm and nurturing environment with caring and experienced staff. Campers developed skills through arts and crafts, physical fitness, science, drama, music, cooking and sports. Each week campers explored new activities and developed new abilities while planting seeds of friendship with memories to last a lifetime.
