Tuition Assistance

Camp Young Judaea Sprout Lake Tuition Assistance Fund

As is true with most things of value, Jewish summer camp is an expensive commitment. If you are interested in sending your child to Camp, and understand the value of the Jewish overnight camp experience, but are in need of financial assistance, we are here to help.

Camp Young Judaea Sprout Lake is committed to working with our families to ensure that no child is turned away due to financial difficulties. If you are in need of scholarship for camp, follow the steps listed below to help make this process a smooth and easy one. Following this process will also ensure that you will be able to receive the maximum amount of dollars available.

Financial Aid is officially closed for the Summer of 2017. Please contact our registrar, Renana, with any questions.

Step #1

Register your child for Camp. We are unable to consider your application for scholarship until we have ensured that there is space for your child in the appropriate section and session. Don’t wait, Register Now!!

Step #2

Determine what your family can afford to pay for Camp. Many applications for scholarship ask that you indicate a certain dollar amount; therefore, you need to figure out what you can contribute and how much assistance you will need.

Step #3

Gather your 2015 tax forms. Most organizations including CYJ Sprout Lake will require tax information for their scholarship forms.

Step #4

Apply to CYJ’s funding partners: your local congregation, Jewish Federation and other local organizations.

After you have done all of the above, you will have the opportunity to apply for scholarship from the Camp Young Judaea Scholarship Fund. The CYJ Scholarship committee provides the last piece of the puzzle for scholarship money. Our committee takes into account your scholarship application along with the money which has been awarded to you from various other organizations (such as the ones listed above) in order to help make it possible for your child/ren to attend Camp in the summer. The scholarship committee begins their meetings in the Spring after other organizations have made their decisions on how to award their scholarship funds. The Young Judaea scholarship application is completely on line and no paper applications are accepted.

Additional Resources

If you would like to be considered for a scholarship from Hadassah, we can facilitate this process for you through our online application. The only requirement in addition to what you have completed is that the mother or father be a Hadassah member. If you are interested in this additional opportunity, please call the office.

All information received from families regarding scholarship is kept confidential. We are here to help, please let us know if you have questions or need more information; contact campsproutlake@youngjudaea.org or call at 917-595-1500, ext 264.
