Families asking for Camperships are required to bake Hamantashen at least one baking session and SELL (not buy) at least 10 dozen hamantashen and work a minimum of 6 hours for the carnival.  Parents that need to stay with their children during the carnival can fulfill their 6 hours of volunteer time by helping set up the evening before and by helping clean up after the carnival.
