Incentives & Financial Aid
One Happy Camper Grant
Incentive grant from UJA/Federation and Camp Shalom available to campers from the Greater Toronto Area attending a Jewish overnight camp for the first time. This grant is not needs-based, and does not require you to submit any financial information. Click here to learn about this program, including eligibility requirements. Campers who have previously attended Shalom for just the Sneak Preview session may still be eligible for this grant. Please contact the camp office for details.
Camp Shalom Camperships
Needs-based tuition assistance is available by application for Summer 2020. After you complete your camper application form, please contact the camp office for more information about the scholarship form and expected timelines. Shalom Scholarship forms will be collected and assessed by a committee of the Camp Shalom board of directors with assured discretion and confidentiality.
CYJ National Scholarship Fund
As an affiliate camp of the Canadian Young Judaea National Movement, Camp Shalom is eligible to draw upon this fund for additional financial assistance towards camper fees. At the discretion of the Camp Director and Scholarship Committee, selected camp scholarship applicants will be put forward to this fund to “double-dip” for your assistance. Please do not contact the CYJ office directly — rest assured that we will do everything in our power to maximize the assistance available to help bring your camper to camp.
Jewish Free Loan Toronto
An interest-free loan for needy Jewish residents of the Greater Toronto Area particularly for those with limited financial resources and difficulty borrowing from other sources such as banks, credit cards, family and friends. Click here to learn more about this organization and how to apply.
