CYC’s financial aid program seeks to make camp available to individuals seeking to enhance their cultural experience, regardless of financial situation. A 50% discount, from the regular camp registration fee and bus fee of $590, may be available to those campers who demonstrate that their family income falls at or below the levels indicated by the chart below.  Please note the CYC Financial Aid covers only 50% of the Registration Fee, applicants who are selected are still responsible for paying $295.

**Please note: If you complete the financial aid application and do not qualify based on the income levels indicated below, you will be required to reapply during camper registration. Camper spots are not guaranteed as we follow a first come first serve process at the start of camper registration.

This year CYC has updated the requirements for receiving financial aid by 200% so that more families qualify.

Family Income


2 ≤ $32,040
