How can I apply for a scholarship? 2017-10-06T18:53:02+00:00

We believe in the power of summer camp for every child!  Each summer, we offer thousands of dollars in scholarships to families in need.  Please note that we receive many scholarship requests and unfortunately, we cannot accommodate everyone. We sure try our best though!

To request a scholarship, families must first complete a camper application including selection of preferred session of enrollment.  Families must also complete a scholarship application.  Both the camper and scholarship application are done online.  If you are requesting a scholarship, you will have the option to select “scholarship” in the payment section.  You will then be directed to the scholarship application.  Scholarship request will be reviewed only after both camper and scholarship applications have been completed and submitted.  We notify families of our decisions related to financial aid in mid-March.

Yes, please email or call the camp office (650 388 9080) if your child will be absent.  Thank you.

Do I need to send in full payment with my application? 2017-01-13T03:02:31+00:00

Can I enroll my child for a week of a session? 2018-04-17T23:35:05+00:00

We believe that the value of Jefunira Camp is the fun that each camper experiences as well as the growth of self-confidence and self-esteem.  A big part of the fun and social growth is the bonding a camper has with other campers and with the counselors.  A two weeks session allows for much stronger bonding and more growth.  But we also realize that it can be hard to find a two-week block that works, so we do offer one week enrollment options.

When will I find out if my child has a space in camp? 2014-05-23T02:34:26+00:00
