If we are unable to accommodate you, JCC Greater Boston will credit your account for use in a future program.

      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 director at kaleidoscope@jccgb.org. Applications are due March 1. Notification will be mid-March.

      Awards are granted on a first come first serve basis. Applications submitted after March 1 are considered if funds are available. If you are not able to accept the offered tuition assistance, you must notify the camp in writing within two weeks of receipt of your award letter, at which point your deposit will be returned. 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.
