Financial Assistance Opportunities

First-Time Camper Grants

If this is your child’s first time going to Jewish sleep away camp for more than 11 days, you may be eligible to receive a $700 or $1,000 grant. These grants are available through One Happy Camper and PJ Goes to Camp. You will find more information on eligibility and how to apply on their websites.

Financial Assistance: Making Camp Affordable

We are committed to ensuring Tawonga is an option for all families regardless of financial constraints. Learn about how to make Camp affordable for your family.

Randomized Registration Process

In an effort to provide transparency and equity in our registration process, and to remove the stressful “race to click,” we utilize a 24-hour stress-free registration window with a randomized registration mechanism. Registrations will be accepted without being processed during the first 24 hours of each registration tier; regardless of the time it is received, it will be considered as a 1st day of registration application.
You can see our 2024 Registration FAQs here.
