Without Shwayder, my bat mitzvah would have been performed with no reason but the reason of inevitability, thanks to Shwayder that is not the case.”

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 15, 2019. 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.

Referral Program

We are so lucky and appreciative to have amazing families in our Shwayder Camp community and we would love your help finding more families just like you! This year we are starting a new referral program where current Shwayder Camp families can receive $100 off for each camper referred to us who registers by February 15, 2019. This must be their first year attending Shwayder Camp. The offer is unlimited, just make sure your friends mention your name when they contact us for the first time in order to be eligible.
