$3,000 OFF Havaya Israel

A limited number of $3,000 RootOne Vouchers are available on a first-come/first-served basis. These are not needs-based and do not require a separate application; if they are still available when you register for Havaya Israel, we’ll automatically apply one to your account.

RootOne is seeded through the generosity of The Marcus Foundation, and is powered by The Jewish Education Project. Please visit www.RootOne.org for more information. And, as always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly if you’d like to learn more!

Havaya Arts in the Poconos

New this summer, campers can choose to dive more deeply into the arts. This unique opportunity is perfect for young artists who want to tailor their Camp Havaya experience to include three hours-a-day specializing in visual art, music, culinary arts, or theater.

During this pilot year, tuition for the program is $400/week, in addition to camp tuition; this discounted fee covers teaching artists and all program supplies. Campers may participate for one week (if registered for the full Aleph session) or two weeks (if registered for the Bet or Rishon Bet sessions). You can sign-up your child for the program when completing your camper application. We look forward to sharing more details in the months ahead!

 

Discounts, Fees, and Cancellations

Discounts

Families with more than one camper may take $100 off tuition as a sibling discount for each camper after the first.

Kuppah

In keeping with Camp’s egalitarian values, a $75 fee, per camper, will be assessed to cover shuk (canteen), Summer 2021 Camp T-shirt, and special program opportunities.

Fund for Excellence

$360 will be added to each family’s account as an annual, voluntary, tax-deductible donation to the Camp Havaya Fund for Excellence. As we continue to grow – and especially in these challenging times – we rely on the generosity of our Camp families to help us “raise the bar” so we can offer the most creative, innovative, and engaging programs. The Fund for Excellence allows us to do just that – to provide more of the high quality programming that has made us one of the “Top 10 Jewish Camps.”

Additional Fees

Families who are not members of a congregation affiliated with Reconstructing Judaism pay an additional $300 annual fee.

For campers who are not flying or being driven to Camp, bus service from Newark Airport, Long Island, and Bethesda (Maryland) will be provided at a cost of $250 roundtrip per family (subject to sufficient enrollment).

Cancellation Insurance

AMSkier’s Peace of Mind provides parents with a partial refund of tuition if their camper is sick or injured and is unable to attend camp. In addition, there is coverage if the camper leaves camp early or if there is a death in the family. This policy has various limits and options available, including coverage for baggage and personal effects. Click here for more information. (If you are interested in Cancel-for-any-Reason insurance, which must be purchased within two weeks of making your initial deposit, please click here to learn more.)

Please note that cancellation deadlines and insurance are different for Havaya Israel. For more information, please contact us.

Our goal is that no camper is turned away from Camp for financial reasons.

Through incentive grants for first-time campers and generous financial aid for those who need, we strive to make Camp financially accessible to all camper families.

One Happy Camper

In partnership with the Foundation for Jewish Camp, Camp Havaya offers an incentive program that is open to campers who live anywhere in North America! The Camp Havaya One Happy Camper program provides financial incentives of up to $1,000 for eligible first-time campers. After you register for Camp, visit www.onehappycamper.org to apply for this great incentive!

Financial Aid

We strive to make Camp financially accessible to all camper families. When applying for Camp, families may request financial aid information; applications will be sent only to families whose children have already been registered. All financial aid applications must be postmarked by February 28, 2021.

As the flagship Reconstructionist camp, we realize that some families may incur significant additional costs for travel. Travel subsidies may be available upon request for costs over $250 per child (up to a total reimbursement, per child, of $150) depending on the distance from home to Camp. The travel subsidy is separate from financial aid. Please contact us for more information.

 

We know signing up is just the start.

The summer will be here before you know it and we know there may be a lot of questions. We’re happy to help!
