  • Bus transportation is also slightly different this week, with regional bus stops available in Brookline, Cambridge, Canton, Framingham, Lexington, Natick and Newton.

Financial Aid

Thanks to the support of generous individual and foundation donors, JCC Greater Boston makes every effort to offer financial assistance to campers in need. For more information and a confidential conversation, please contact the Camp Office at 617.244.5124.

Awards are accepted on a first come first serve basis. Applications submitted after April 1 are considered if funds are available. If you are not able to accept the offered assistance, you must submit a written request for a deposit refund within two weeks of award notification. Additional weeks can be added after the deadline has passed, however, there is no guarantee the weekly rate of the new weeks will be the same as the weeks previously registered. Financial aid is not transferable between camps.
