Typically we give one full (or two half) scholarships per child (include which you prefer in your note as well). If there are remaining seats after our May 31st deadline we may award a second camp scholarship.

To apply: To be considered for a scholarship please mail (or email) a copy of your documentation and a copy of the registration form.
