Additional Information

Tuition Discounts

  • Sibling Discount: Each additional child from your family who registers for camp gets $100 off the cost of tuition.
  • Multi-Session Discount: Campers receive a discount for attending more than one session.
  • One Happy Camper Grant: Campers who have never attended a Jewish summer camp before may be eligible to receive up to $1000 off the cost of tuition from the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s One Happy Camper program. To be eligible, campers must be: registered for our camp and attend at least one full session; have never attended a non-profit Jewish overnight camp for 12 or more consecutive nights, and not currently attend a Jewish day school. Campers attending for 2 weeks may be eligible for the $700 grant while campers attending for more than 2 weeks may be eligible for the $1000 grant. For more information, please visit the One Happy Camper website and apply for the program to determine eligibility.
  • First Time Family (FTF) Voucher: Due to the generosity of our donors, families who will be attending 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy East in-person for the first time in 2022 will receive an additional $350 voucher to put towards their total tuition. Now, more than ever, our camp supporters want to make it easier for new families to discover the magic of camp connections and summer friendships. The voucher would be given once per family, not per camper. This voucher is for new families, so campers with siblings who have attended Sci-Tech East previously are not eligible. There are a limited number of vouchers available, so register soon! Vouchers will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis as families enroll in the program.
  • Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) – First-time Scholarship for Girls: 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy received a generous grant from the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) to provide scholarships for girls. Girls who attend in-person camp for the first time in Summer 2022 can receive a $200 scholarship off the total tuition for the summer. Applicants must first be registered for camp to be considered for the scholarship and must then fill out a short application to receive the scholarship. It is the goal of Women of Reform Judaism to engage more girls in Jewish life and WRJ believes that by supporting girls' attendance at Sci-Tech, girls will be empowered not only to love Judaism but to also pursue their interests in science and technology. For more information about how Sci-Tech supports women in STEM, check out our previous #SupportGirlsInSTEM campaign, in partnership with Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ).

Deposits

A $500 per camper/per session deposit is due at the time of registration via electronic payment method (Credit Card, Debit Card, or E-Check (ACH)) in order to process a camper application. All payments, including deposits, are fully refundable through January 31, 2022.

A $1000 per camper/per session deposit is due at the time of registration starting March 1.

A $1500 per camper/per session deposit is due at the time of registration starting May 1.

Intersession Options

During the days in between each session, we have exciting programs planned for your camper. Our campers will play outside, hang out with their camp friends, and participate in some leisurely science or technology projects while hanging out at camp. After a busy two weeks, they will also have time to unwind, sleep a little late, and enjoy the camp environment. We believe strongly that the intersession time is very much an important part of the camp experience, and that each camper staying for two sessions or more be enrolled in intersession programming.

Since rising 11th graders only come during our 3rd session, they cannot sign up for an Intersession. Participants in the Full-Summer Machon Program for rising 12th graders are automatically enrolled in Intersession.

Families with campers staying multiple sessions have two options during intersession:

Option 1: This option is the one we highly recommend! In Option 1, your camper participates in all intersession activities, including sports, STEM projects, etc. Your camper will receive the same level of supervision that they receive throughout the session from our caring and warm counselors. We have found this option to be the least disruptive to the camper experience, and greatly improves camper mental health and sense of connectedness to camp! If you choose this option you must register for the Intersession.

Option 2: You may pick up your child after the closing day camper pickup time at 12 PM ET. Please do not arrive earlier as we will be saying goodbye to our first and second session campers. At 12 PM ET, you will sign your camper out of camp for the entire intersession. Your camper will then spend Sunday and Monday with you. Please plan to return your camper to camp at 7 PM Monday evening. If you are not able to commit to this option, your child must be enrolled in the intersession. If you choose this option, do not need to register for intersession. If you do not choose Option 2, you do not need to register for Intersession.

*Please note that in 2022, Option 2 may not be possible depending on health standards as a result of COVID-19 safety protocols. As we approach the summer, we will communicate Intersession specifics with families.

Refund & Cancellation Policy

We will remain nimble and responsive to ever-evolving local standards and protocols. If camp is unable or elects not to open camp due to government regulations or if camp chooses not to open at its own discretion, you will receive a full refund, including the deposit, without penalty.

If camp is required to make a change to a camper session prior to summer, families will be notified in writing. Camp will provide an opportunity at that time for families to cancel their registration without penalty (including the return of any deposit).

Refunds will be given without penalty (including deposit):

  • If Camp is unable or elects not to open because of government regulations, orders, or guidelines.
  • If Camp is required to cancel the session of a child with a pre-existing health condition.
  • If Camp is unable or chooses not to open at their own discretion.
  • If Camp is unable to secure a rental facility.
  • For campers on a “Waiting List” (those not able to be placed in their desired session at camp) if at any time they choose to be removed from the list or are ultimately unable to be placed.

Refunds will not be made if Camper has attended any portion of the session at Camp. This covers all circumstances, including, but not limited to:

  • Camper’s homesickness
  • Camper’s refusal or inability to participate in the normal activities at Camp
  • Camper’s violation of any rules, regulations, or policies at Camp for which Camper has been provided notice, and as described in “Camper’s Participation and Camp Program Expectations” section of the terms and conditions.

Should a family decide to cancel on their own prior to the beginning of camp, all normal cancellation policies will apply.

Refund Policy:

  • Cancellation by January 31, 2022 - 100% of tuition including the deposit is refundable
  • Cancellation between February 1 and March 31, 2022 - 100% of tuition is refundable except for the deposit.
  • Cancellation between April 1, 2022, and May 15, 2022 – 75% of tuition is refundable.
  • Cancellation after May 15, 2022 – no refunds will be given unless stated above.

Camp reserves the right to refund any eligible refund in multiple installments as determined by Camp.

Payment Methods

What forms of payment do you accept? Deposits and electronic payments may be made by E-check (ACH), debit card, or credit card (we accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover). A non-refundable 2.75% credit card processing fee will be added to all credit card transactions. To avoid credit card processing fees, families can choose to pay by E-check or debit card. E-Check will allow tuition to be deducted directly from either your checking or savings account.

We are committed to offering ways for our families to avoid this surcharge. Families can choose E-check at the time of check-out or pay with a debit card, neither of which incur credit card surcharges. E-Check will allow tuition to be deducted directly from either your checking or savings account. Both E-checks and debit cards can be used with our payment plan options.
