|Camp Rising Sun Europe|
It is with regret that the George E. Jonas Foundation must announce that there will be no CRS Europe camp in 2012.
The George E. Jonas Foundation has not been able to raise sufficient funds for the camp season in time.
The George E. Jonas Foundation continues to fundraise for a 2013 season of CRS Europe. We hope to succeed because we want to continue to give young promising girls from different countries this opportunity to a personal experience in an environment, which furthers openness and develops democratic, social, and cultural values.
