Discounts 
Sibling Discounts: A 10% sibling discount automatically applies when you register two or more children. For the discount to apply, all children need to be registered at the same time.


Refer a NEW Camper: Refer a NEW camper who has never enrolled in J-Camp before and both families will receive $50 off a camp session. To receive this discount, both parties must register for camp and fill out the Refer a New Camper form by May 31, 2023. This form is in the welcome email after registration is complete.

 

Early Bird Discount: When you sign up on or before March 3, 2023, each camper receives $50 off one camp session. If you register for the entire eight weeks, you will receive $150 off.

 

Host Family Discount: We have Israeli staff join our team each summer. The best way for our Israeli staff to experience America is to immerse themselves in the day-to-day lives of our J-Camp families! Host family responsibilities include housing, meals, transportation to and from J-Camp and access to laundry facilities. Once they have met peers at camp, most international staff members are able to secure rides home each day. Host families who host for a minimum of four weeks receive $1,000 credit toward camp this summer. If you are interested in hosting one or more of our Israeli staff members, please email pbassett@paloaltojcc.org or mvaldez@paloaltojcc.org.

Scholarship/Financial Aid
We want all children to be able to have an amazing summer with us. Here at J-Camp we are able to provide camperships in order to help make camp more affordable. Before applying for financial assistance, please register your child for camp so that your family has an Active account. To apply, please fill out the financial assistance application found in your confirmation email. Applications and your 2022 Tax Return must be submitted to the OFJCC by April 1, 2023. Fully completed applications are necessary to begin consideration. In the case that an award does not meet a family's need, all money paid will be fully refunded.

 

Camperships are made possible through the OFJCC Camp Scholarship Fund and the Jewish Community Day Camp Scholarship Fund of the Jewish Community Endowment Fund. For more information, please contact the scholarship committee at youth@paloaltojcc.org.
