Tuition Programs

First-Time Camper Welcome Grants

All new Cohen Camps campers enrolled for a full session (3.5 weeks) or the full season automatically enjoy a special welcome: $250 off one session or $500 off the full season.

Cohen Camps Sibling Discount

Keep camp in the family! Enroll multiple children at this camp – or at any of the three Cohen Camps (Tel Noar, Tevya and Pembroke) – and save. Your first camper attends at regular tuition, and all your additional campers receive a reduced rate: $200 off one session or $350 off the full season. Please note: only one discount per child, so first-time siblings will receive the higher First-Time Camper Welcome Grant, and then the Sibling Discount in subsequent years.

One Happy Camper: Up to $1,000 Off

The Foundation for Jewish Camp offers One Happy Camper, a program providing up to $1000 off for many first-time campers enrolled for at least one full session (3.5 weeks), or $700 if enrolled for a 2-week session. Eligibility and grant amounts are determined by your local sponsoring organization in coordination with FJC. These funds are limited, so we recommend you look into this as soon as possible! For more information and to find out your eligibility, visit

Early Bird Registration

As a returning camper, you can sign up in the fall before we open enrollment to new families – and enjoy reduced tuition if you do so before the deadline. The deadline is FIRM, so please apply quickly!

Cohen Camps Cash-and-Check Discounts

Families who complete the application process and pay their tuition in full by cash or check no later than January 31st, 2017 will receive an additional discount towards the tuition of each camper.
