We offer many opportunities to help those in need to attend our camp program. Since our funds are limited, we ask that if your child attends another camp program, or you can afford to pay for a week of camp, that you do not take funds from families that truly are in need. If you need partial funding, please let us know. Some alumni who donate may not have the full campership amount, but want donate to help campers.
- When you click the link to apply, you will need to set up an account in our registration site for us to accept the application. If your child was a camper last year, you do not need to create a new account. Just log into your account from last summer.
- Once you have the general information in the account, you will not be able to pick a session until you have a form of “payment”. Once we receive the application and reference, your application will be reviewed by the committee.
- Once we award you with a campership, we will send you a confirmation email with a “code” to put in so that you can register your child into a session. This code helps you to get your child into classes and sessions until we can determine the amount of the campership that we will provide.
- You will need to have someone fill out a reference. Typically families use someone from their school, a social worker or close family friend. Send them this link to the Recommendation Form (http://campsacandaga.com/camper-recommendation-form/) or send us an email and we will send them a link. They can fill it out and submit it. We can not award a campership without a reference!!!
The campfire council will determine which youth will receive camperships. We typically will not award them until mid-May. We will send you confirmation once we make the decisions.
A few things to note…
Camperships are awarded to families in need.
Most camperships are awarded in early May. If you do not apply early, you could miss out!
Since we have numerous requests from families in need, we can’t give out multiple week awards to individual campers.
The campership amount typically covers the cost of enrollment. It does not cover the cost for some of the advanced classes or funds the camp store, unless the person making the donation has given additional amounts for these things.
It is a requirement that families send a letter to camp thanking the people that donated for your child after the summer is complete. Failure to do so could jeopardize future camperships.
