Camp Scholarships & Financial Assistance

A guide to making camp affordable!

The Temple Kol Emeth community recognizes the value of a child attending a Jewish summer camp.  These experiences become a Jewish foundation - giving kids a chance to make Jewish friends, learn Jewish values, and experience Jewish life that stays with them as they grow into Jewish adults.
 
We know that Jewish summer camp is expensive - and sending your child is a recognition of its value to you and your child.  There are programs that can assist you in putting Jewish summer camp within your means.  We encourage you to apply for all sources of aid as soon as possible. Together, we hope that you can put together a fabulous summer for your child!
 
Register for Camp!
 
If your intention is to send your child to camp, register right away. Don’t wait until you hear about scholarships – there may not be any space left by then! A deposit is required for registration. 
Apply for Scholarships:
One Happy Camper Grants (First and Second Year Campers):
If your child will be attending camp for the first or second time, you may be eligible to receive an incentive grant to help make those first summer camp experiences more affordable. Incentives are available nationwide, with various conditions & amounts. 
The One Happy Camper application is available on this website.
 
Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta Overnight Camp Scholarships: 
Federation’s Scholarship Program helps families with the cost of overnight camp tuition. Camp scholarships are available to all families. Applications are reviewed by a Scholarship Committee as part of an anonymous review and allocations process. All applications and inquiries are confidential. The Scholarship Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis from December through March. 
 
Financial Aid offered directly from the camp:
Each camp has its own system in place to provide assistance for families interested in sending their kids to camp. Below is a list of camps and their methods. If your camp is not on the list, visit your camp’s website.
Camp Scholarships available through TKE: 
TKE has several different funds that support our youth - and these funds all support the goal of helping to send your child to a URJ-affiliated Jewish summer camp. These funds come from donors in our community who support the Irv & Rita Lebow URJ Camp Scholarship Fund as well as the L’Dor Vador Fund sponsored by the Women of Reform Judaism at TKE. 
 
For 2024, the priority deadline to apply for camp scholarships from TKE is Thursday, February 29.
If you have questions about TKE's camp scholarships, please contact Rabbi Daniel Alter.
