There are several scholarships available for Camp Achdus families.
Many families qualify to receive 10-30% of camp tuition payed through the JFGP day camp scholarship fund. We strongly encourage everyone to apply early! The application deadline was March 31, 2017.
Jewish Family & Children Services
Jewish Family and Children Services offers assistance to families with financial strain. Anyone interested in receiving any types of services through JFCS should call their Intake Dept. at 1.866.532.7669 (JFCS.NOW).
If you already receive services from JFCS, you can ask them about additional scholarship for summer camp.
Female Hebrew Benevolent Society
The FHBS is another wonderful source for scholarships for families with great need. You do not contact them directly. Their services are provided through referring agencies such as JFCS.
If you call JFCS for help with camp tuition, ask them about FHBS, as well.
