GET $700 OR $1,000 OFF! – One Happy Camper Grant
CLA is proud to be a participant in the One Happy Camper grant program.  That means qualifying campers will be eligible for a grant of $700 towards a 2 week session and $1,000 towards a 3 week or longer session. (Note: Applicants for a One Happy Camper grant who live in certain geographic areas or are PJ Library participants are eligible for a grant of $1,000.)

CLA Scholarships & Other Financial Aid

Our Camp Scholarship program provides assistance to families that are unable to pay the full tuition. The amount awarded is determined on the basis of need and the availability of funds.

Please note that CLAs’ Camp Scholarship will not be considered without the deposit, which is fully refundable if CLA is unable to provide sufficient aid to facilitate attendance. If the deposit itself creates an obstacle, please call us at 718-436-8255 to discuss.

To apply for aid, please follow these easy steps:

  • Register for camp by completing the Enrolment Application;
  • Check the box requesting the Camp Scholarship Application during the enrollment process; and
  • Pay the $300 deposit.

Scholarships from Other Organizations

We encourage you to check with your synagogue, Jewish Federation, or other local agencies that might provide assistance to help make camp more affordable. Most scholarships and grants require you to first register for a session at CLA.

Members of the PJ Library and residents of Washington, DC, Philadelphia, PA, and the state of Massachusetts, may be eligible for further incentive grants; please see the section above describing the One Happy Camper grants, and call us at 718-436-8255 for more information.
