Supporting Scholarships for Camp

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are important to us, as goals that we are continually working towards, and reasons that some of you choose our camp over others. In the Summer 2020 we started offering a sliding scale of prices in acknowledgement of different financial situations in our community, and scholarship requests have grown during the pandemic as some families are more impacted by changes in income than others. In addition, in acknowledgment of how systemic racism has affected the ability of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color financially, we give special consideration to applicants from these communities if they opt to share this information with us.

If your family is able to support our scholarship fund, or if you have expiring Flexible Spending Account moneys through work, it would make a big difference for a child or youth leader who otherwise couldn’t attend camp.
