Financial Assistance

Please remember that Yeshivas HaKayitz is a non-profit camp. Despite increasing costs, fees are kept at the lowest possible rate. Partial scholarships are available to those who demonstrate a need.  Upon submitting your application your credit card will be charged the $300 deposit and the scheduled balance payments will begin. When an agreed upon scholarship has been reached an adjustment will be made to the remaining monthly payments reflecting the new balance. In the event that we can’t meet your financial need, your deposit and payments will be returned. Most local Jewish Federations offer summer camp financial aid. We ask that you apply there as well.

Please complete the financial assistance form which is found on the Forms section of your Parent Dashboard.  This form is due within two weeks after your camp application is submitted.

OUTSIDE SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNIES

PJ Goes to Camp – Summer of 2020 

First-time campers are eligible for grants of up to $1,000

Summer camp can be a transformative experience, providing children with the opportunity to make memories and friendships that last a lifetime. The mission of PJ Goes to Camp is to provide more children the opportunity to attend Jewish overnight camp for the first time by offering grants to qualifying families. PJ Goes to Camp is one of 47 funders of the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s One Happy Camper® (OHC) program.

PJ Goes to Camp will begin accepting applications for the summer of 2020 on October 1, 2019. The eligibility requirements for these grants are very specific, so please read carefully to make sure your family is eligible before submitting an application.

Grants are distributed to students who attend a Jewish day school by lottery:
The PJ Goes to Camp program is one of few OHC sponsors who offer grants to students who attend a Jewish day school.  Because of the high demand and limited number of available grants, awards to students who attend a Jewish day school are distributed through a lottery system.  The lottery for grants for day school students will be held in November.  However, day school students may complete an application and be placed on our wait list.  Day school students who apply after November 17, 2019 will be placed on the wait list in the order in which their request is received.
