The program’s tuition has been generously subsidized by incentive grants from the Foundation for Jewish Camp and the Genesis Philanthropy Group allowing us to offer significantly reduced costs to first and second time campers from North America. Grant availability and amounts vary based on previous attendance at residential Jewish camp programs and gradually decrease each year of attendance.
Campers who have never attended a Jewish overnight summer camp program of 19+ days may be eligible to receive a $1,000 One Happy Camper grant from the Foundation for Jewish Camp.
- Sibling Discount – $200 off total tuition amount is applicable for each additional camper from the same family.
- Referral Discount – $250 will be applied toward the tuition of any registered camper for every new camper registered based on his/her recommendation.
Need-based assistance for tuition and travel costs is available by application. When completing your Tel Yehudah registration, make sure to select “YES” to indicate you are interested in applying for tuition assistance. Upon enrollment you will receive the tuition assistance application and instructions. Please note that there is a $25 application fee.
