Nominate a youth deserved of this fantastic opportunity by completing the below form.

The application period will close on Sunday March 1, 2020.  Rolling notifications will be sent out via email beginning the week of March 2, 2020.  If you receive notification of a scholarship award, you will have 72 hours to accept or decline.  At the end of this 72 hour period, if no response has been received, we will move on to the next batch of submissions.

The notification/acceptance period generally lasts approximately two weeks.

Scholarships will be awarded based on an essay submitted by the nominator. Submitting a scholarship application does not guarantee acceptance. Scholarship applicants must submit the camp registration form and a parent/guardian must sign the camp’s waiver and release.
