Apply for Financial Assistance
Dear 6 Points Sports Family:
Thank you for your interest in the URJ 6 Points Sports Financial Assistance Program! The goal of this program is to ensure that, to the extent possible, any child is able to experience a session with us at camp. All of our camperships are awarded based on financial need. Please note that if your camper has NEVER attended a Jewish overnight camp before you are eligible for additional grant funding ($700-$1000), regardless of need, through One Happy Camper. You must apply for this separately.
Our goal at URJ 6 Points Sports Academy is to help all families in need and we receive many requests for scholarship. As a new summer camp, our funds available for campership are limited. The amount of aid awarded to each eligible camper will be based on the number of applicants, level of need and, of course, overall funds available. We view your synagogue and other community organizations as an important part of the campership process and view them as partners in providing the summer camp experience.
For those applicants whom are not members of a congregation, we ask that you research other Jewish organizations, such as Jewish Family Service, as part of the application process.
Please note the following:
- We only review and process complete financial assistance applications for campers who are currently enrolled to attend camp. Your child must be registered in order for us to review and process your scholarship application. The Camp Financial Aid Application is an online form available within the Forms sections your CampInTouch account. Once you are registered for camp, you will have access to the application.
- If you are a member of a congregation, you should know that many provide funds for camp attendance and we will MATCH those funds up to $250 per camper! Please meet with a representative from your congregation (clergy, educator, or administrator) and have them complete the Temple/Community Contribution Form. Regardless of your congregation’s ability to provide scholarship, this signed form must accompany your application. If you are NOT a member of any congregation, please let us know as much in your Financial Aid application.
- The deadline for electronic receipt of completed applications is Wednesday, March 1, 2018. Once the application process has closed, all applications for scholarship will be considered and you will be notified by March 15th regarding funds awarded. If you are having trouble uploading these documents, you can scan and email them to SportsCA@urj.org. After the initial scholarship application process is complete, requests for scholarship will be reviewed on a monthly basis. Following the initial scholarship application submission deadline and allocations, funds are only granted as they are available, and the majority of scholarship funds will be allocated after the initial March 1st deadline.
- Scholarship assistance is provided as a credit on camp fees and you will receive an email confirmation indicating the amount awarded, for your records.
If you have any questions regarding our financial assistance process, please call our offices to speak with Director, Brian Mitchell at 310-912-7335 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
