Financial Aid

At 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, we recognize the lifelong benefits of Jewish camp for children and their families. We also know that quality camping experiences can seem expensive for some, and try to the best of our abilities to help ease the expense. Please note the following about our financial aid:

  • The application will be available in the Fall of 2016 and will be available online for families who are already registered via their CampInTouch account. In order to be considered for financial aid, families must be registered for camp.
  • The financial aid application is due Tues, Feb 28, 2017.
  • We expect families to approach any and all funding sources available before applying to the camp. Many synagogues and local Jewish federations have programs specifically to assist families send children to camp. This helps us reserve our limited funds for families that do not have these options at their disposal and for families that are most in need.
  • The sooner you begin looking for financial assistance, the better your chances of finding it. By the spring, most scholarship funds have been used up for the year. If you are looking for scholarship after the February 28th application due date, we will still accept scholarship applications after this date and our scholarship committee will consider applications monthly through the start of camp. However, after the initial scholarship due date and allocations, funds are allocated based on funds available.
  • Funds are limited, and we unfortunately cannot guarantee that applicants will receive aid.

To apply for financial aid, please follow these steps:

  • Determine what you are able to pay. All families are expected to contribute to the cost of camp.
  • Apply for the One Happy Camper incentive grant if your child is a first-time camper.
  • Apply to local sources for funding, such as synagogues, federations, and Jewish family services.
  • Ask family and friends. Grandparents are an especially great resource, and understand the importance of Jewish camp!
  • Complete our financial aid application.
