Camp Scholarships

At SJCC Summer Camps we believe that all Jewish children should have the opportunity to enjoy a summer at our camps. We provide confidential financial assistance for families who are not able to pay for camp.

To apply for Financial Assistance please download the application, scan, and send it to SJCC President/COO Barry Sohn, by March 31, 2021. Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis. All summer camp programs must be paid in full by June 30, 2020.


Keeping COVID out of our Camps

The health and safety of our campers and staff is our top priority as we plan for summer 2021. While it is difficult at this time to know exactly what the city and provincial guidelines for camp will be down the road, for now, we are planning to run our programs in relatively the same manner that we did for summer 2020, which was a success. All of our camp programs will adhere to the most current City of Ottawa and Province of Ontario COVID-19 guidelines and we will pivot as necessary to ensure a safe yet unforgettable summer experience for all our campers.

This summer Day Camp and Sports Camp (for obvious reasons, we are not able to offer Travelling Sports Camp) are being offered in two-week blocks. You must sign up for a two-week session. Each camp does offer a four-day option the first week of August and all Specialty Camps are one week.
