Answers to common questions you might have about Chidon

Is there a cost for the Shabbaton?

A tremendous amount of time, work, and money goes into creating the Chidon Shabbaton. In fact,  we have staff working on it all year long! 

The actual cost of Shabbaton is between $275-325 per child. Thanks to a generous grant by Mr. George Rohr, there is an optional subsidy of $100 for all those who opt in. 

That leaves the cost of Chidon for children who are part of a registered Chidon base $175 per child. For those who may join independently, it is $225 due to additional logistics and services required to accommodate them. 

We understand that some families have trouble with this fee, including many families who proudly send multiple children to the Shabbaton every year. For this reason, we have created the Chidon Drive, a platform which allows families to get their fees covered by family and friends who support this incredible life-changing program for those they love. Stay tuned for updates as to when the Chidon Drive will open this year.
