Each summer we support families through scholarship programs to make camp possible for as many children as we can. Learn more about our scholarship information, payment plans and important policies regarding payments and refund information below.

Scholarships

If you are interested in applying for scholarships you will select the “Scholarship Payment Plan” upon registration. This will ask for 15% of your tuition paid in an initial deposit followed by a payment plan of 5% of your remaining tuition each month until scholarships are awarded in April.

  • If you need to withdraw for financial reasons, your tuition is 100% refundable.
  • If you are unable to make these type of financial commitment, contact us prior to registration to set up a custom payment option.

We use FAST financial aid services to review and award financial need based scholarships. Please see the deadlines below. If you cannot meet these deadlines, or have any issues with submitting your 2018 OR 2019 tax returns, you must contact Allison Marshall directly to make additional arrangements at amarshall@jccdenver.org or 303.316.6315.

Important Policies and Refund Information

Important Note

Credit card processing procedures at the JCC Denver have changed. This year, families will have the option to use ACH (checking account) to pay for camp at no charge. If you would like to use a credit card in conjunction with one of our payment plans, please expect to be charged a 3% convenience fee for all transactions. Pay in Full using credits card will not be charged a convenience fee. You are also welcome to pay by check.

Please contact Allison Marshall at amarshall@jccdenver.org to arrange check payments.

Split Party Billing

The JCC will not be responsible for split payments between two parents or guardians. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian registering the child to set up a mutually agreed upon payment plan from both parties. Failure to pay from 1 party will result in financial responsibility being assigned to the other party, or the child will be withdrawn from the program.

Split Party Financial Assistance

If a split party requires financial assistance, both parties must apply separately through the financial aid application process. If only one party needs assistance and qualifies, the financial assistance will only be granted towards his/her portion of the bill.

 Refund and Cancellation Policies

The JCC Ranch Camp has a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel for any reason within 24 hours of registering, you will receive a full refund.
