“I was so impressed with the program! The teachers and content were excellent, and they had so much FUN while learning. My children attended thanks to the scholarship program (the only way we could have attended) and, it being our first year, I was a bit uneasy that my kids would be singled out because of this. But there was no distinction between them and anyone else, and they learned so much in a healthy environment. It was one of the best uses of their time this summer.”

To Request a Scholarship
At the time of registration, you will be asked if you would like to request a scholarship. The deadline to request a scholarship is May 1, 2023. Scholarship requests are reviewed until the deadline and awards granted until available funds are depleted. Each student is eligible for a partial scholarship (up to $125) that can be used toward either a half-day or a full-day camp during Summer 2023.
Scholarship requests are accepted online during the registration process beginning in spring 2023. A $10 deposit per camp plus any applicable fees will be due at the time of registration. Additional camps beyond the first will be billed at full price at the time of registration. Please select a camp with open spots (do not add your student to the waitlist for a camp that is full) in order to ensure that your scholarship application and payment can be processed before the May 1 deadline. We recommend having a backup selection in the event that your student's first choice is not available. We are unable to award scholarships retroactively or apply them to waitlisted applications.
Once your application has been reviewed, you will be notified via email of your scholarship award amount. Your student's spot in the camp is reserved during this process.
The deadline to request a scholarship is May 1, 2023.

The cost of Before Care and supervised Lunch Care are not eligible for scholarship. Fees for these optional services and additional fees for those camps which include a field trip or extra materials (if they are selected) are the sole responsibility of the family.
Requests are reviewed and scholarships are awarded until all available funds are depleted. Awardees will be notified via email before May 1, 2023 and all remaining balances must be paid in full by May 15, 2023. Payments are accepted online only; major credit cards and e-checks are allowed.
A deposit of $10 will be collected at the time of registration.
