Financial Aid / Discounts

Financial Aid

financialaid-photoA limited amount of financial aid is available on request and by completion of a confidential information form.   Contact the camp office to request a financial aid application. Scholarship requests should be made by March 9, 2018. Applicants who are not members of Temple Emanuel must first request financial aid from their home congregation or Jewish community agency.


Many families send more than one child to camp. Consequently, we offer a 10% discount for each additional camper that a family sends to Shwayder.
