Financial Assistance

YCC believes that every child should have the opportunity to attend summer camp. Below are multiple financial assistance programs available to help your child attend YCC.

YCC offers a $50 reduction for each additional child registered per session. This discount is not applicable for starter or weekend camp.
Payment plans are available upon request. If you need assistance, feel free to contact us

The One Happy Camper Grant is open to first time campers only. Get up to $1,000 off your child’s first summer at Jewish overnight camp!

If your child is a first time camper, then your child may be eligible for a One Happy Camper Grant. There are no income requirements for eligibility; simply fill out the application form.  If you have more than one child who is a first time camper, you can apply for a grant for each child.

  • First-time campers who will be attending a Jewish overnight camp for 19 or more consecutive days are eligible to receive $1,000.
  • First time campers who will be attending a Jewish overnight camp for 12-18 consecutive days could be eligible to receive $700.
  • $500 grants for first-time campers who are enrolled for 12+ consecutive days and who have siblings that have received the OHC grant in the past.
  • If a child enrolls for 12-18 days with a $700 grant and extends their stay to 19+ days, they will be able to upgrade to $1,000 (if funding remains available for that summer).

The safety and well-being of our campers are our top priorities, and like you, we have been closely monitoring the situation in Israel. At this point, it is challenging for us to confirm whether the trip will take place as scheduled. However, we have continued our planning so that if we feel it is safe to travel to Israel, we are ready.

In hopes that a trip can take place and in order to be ready to move ahead, please apply for the grants below for your camper. If the trip is cancelled or you decide not to send your camper to Israel this summer, they will be eligible to apply again next year.

Montreal teens are eligible to receive EITHER GO@TEENISRAEL or GO@DALFENFELLOWS but not both. If your teen is not accepted as a GO@DALFENFELLOWS, they will automatically be rolled over to the GO@TEENISRAEL program.

Campers are required to complete the application, submit a letter of reference, and participate in learning sessions focusing on Israel, Jewish heritage, community engagement and leadership.

Deadline for application is December 29, 2023
