One Happy Camper Grants for Qualifying First-Timers

The One Happy Camper program offers grants to many families of first-time campers at Jewish camps. Each local Federation or sponsoring organization sets its own eligibility and funding. Typical grants may be up to $1000 for a family’s first child enrolled for a full session (3.5 weeks), and up to $700 for those in 2-week sessions. Smaller grants are offered for siblings. Funds are limited; please inquire early! Check your eligibility/availability at www.onehappycamper.org.

Tuition Programs & Resources

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 (Pembroke, Tel Noar, and Tevya) – 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 Grants for Qualifying First-Timers

The One Happy Camper program offers grants to many families of first-time campers at Jewish camps. Each local Federation or sponsoring organization sets its own eligibility and funding.

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 the end of January (see exact date above) will receive an additional discount towards the tuition of each camper.
