Financial Aid

We recognize the financial burden associated with sending your son to overnight camp, and we are happy to work with our families to help offset this cost. Families can give their sons the gift of a Jewish overnight camp with assistance from both the Bauercrest Scholarship Program and outside funding sources (listed below).

Bauercrest Scholarship Program

Our Scholarship Committee is committed to ensuring that no child is denied a Bauercrest summer for financial reasons. Our scholarships are funded through our annual campaign, fundraising events, and direct donations from our extraordinarily generous Alumni and Board of Directors.

Our scholarships are provided on a needs-based evaluation by our Scholarship Committee, which reviews each application very carefully. The committee is dedicated to ensuring that the camp’s resources are distributed as equitably as possible to those families who truly need financial assistance.

Families applying for a Bauercrest Scholarship are required to complete a Financial Assistance Application and provide the necessary support documentation. Enrolled families may access our Financial Assistance Application through their CampInTouch Forms Dashboard.

The submission deadline for Bauercrest Scholarship Application is April 15, 2022.
