Jewish camping is an investment in your child’s values, friendships, character and Jewish commitment. Did you know that adults who were campers are 50% more likely to join a synagogue, 90% more likely to join a JCC, twice as likely to contribute to a Federation, and 25% more likely to marry and raise children as Jews?

To help families provide Jewish camp for their children, The Cohen Camps offer many 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, Pembroke 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: Up to $1000 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). Eligibility and grant amounts are determined by your local sponsoring organization in coordination with FJC. For more information and to find out your eligibility, visit www.onehappycamper.org.
Early Bird Registration
Returning campers can sign up in late fall before we open enrollment to new families – and enjoy reduced tuition if they do so before the deadline.
