At 6 Points Creative Arts Academy, we recognize the lifelong benefits of Jewish camp for children and their families. We also know that quality camping experiences can seem expensive for some, which is why financial assistance is available to ease the expense. 6 Points Creative Arts and our scholarship partners are committed to making camp a reality for as many children as possible.
We urge you to follow the steps described on this page to maximize available resources.
The sooner you begin looking for financial assistance, the better your chances of finding it.
Camp Financial Assistance – Step by Step
STEP ONE: REGISTER YOUR CHILD FOR 6 POINTS CREATIVE ARTS ACADEMY
STEP TWO: TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A FIRST-TIME CAMPER INCENTIVE PROGRAM
If your child will be attending 6 Points Creative Arts as their first Jewish overnight experience, you are eligible to receive an incentive grant to help make your first summer more affordable. Incentives are available nationwide, with various conditions & amounts. Details here!
STEP THREE: APPLY TO ALL LOCAL COMMUNITY SOURCES AVAILABLE
Many congregations have scholarship & discretionary funds available to help send children to 6 Points Creative Arts. Contact your Rabbi, Cantor, Educator, Executive Director and/or Congregational President. They will inform you of the congregation’s application requirements.
Many community-based Jewish organizations have camp scholarship programs. Contact your local or regional Jewish Federation, Jewish Welfare Fund, or other Jewish family-servicing organization to find out about availability.
Your local arts organizations may also have funding available.
STEP FOUR: REACH OUT TO FAMILY & FRIENDS
Every member of a child’s support network – grandparents, aunts & uncles, close family friends – stands to benefit when a child has a transformative experience at Camp. That is why they are often so willing to support a child in their family attending camp. Be willing to ask!
STEP FIVE: SUBMIT A FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE APPLICATION TO 6 POINTS CREATIVE ARTS
After all other available financial resources have been identified, families who still need additional funding should complete the on-line Financial Assistance Application. Forms must be submitted by March 15th and we will notify you of the committee’s decision no later than April 1st. We will continue to accept applications after the March 2nd deadline based on available funds. Our financial assistance application is connected to your CampInTouch account. Log in to that account, click on Forms, scroll down to the Financial Assistance Application, and complete the form in its entirety.
