Financial Aid & Grant Opportunities
At Tavor, we strive to create an affordable and accessible enriching summer camp experience, but we know that scholarships, financial aid and grants are critical to maintaining that accessibility. We’ve compiled a variety of resources – national, regional, and local – that we hope will helpful to you as you plan for your summer at camp.
Payment plans are available by request and can be coordinated with the Camp Tavor executive director. We are happy to take post-dated checks or credit card numbers and work with you to create a comfortable tuition payment plan. Payment plans can begin as early as fall registration and tuition must be paid in full before the first day of the camper’s session. For more information or to set up a payment plan please call our main number (269-215-1399) and speak with Amit Weitzer.
One Happy Camper
First-time campers may be eligible for up to $1000 off of camp tuition! Local program providers define eligibility requirements in coordination with the Foundation for Jewish Camp. Most providers use these basic requirements:
Campers must be registered for camp for the first time for at least 12 consecutive days or longer. Some exceptions may apply. (Some partners require 19+ consecutive days.)
One Happy Camper grants are intended for children who are not currently participating in a daily immersive Jewish experience. As such, children attending a Jewish day school or yeshiva are typically not eligible. However, select partners may have some resources for Jewish day school children.
