Financial Assistance & Scholarship Resources

SCHOLARSHIPS AT CAMP IDLEWILD

Camp Idlewild awards scholarships each year, based on need and availability of funds. The scholarship application is built into our regular application.

Just click on register, and one of the last questions asks about applying for a scholarship. You must fill out the entire application to apply for a scholarship. Our camp is young, and while access to camp is very important to us, we don't have a whole lot of scholarships. However, we have a great list of places that provide funds for summer recreation programs (see below). We strongly suggest applying for some of these grants early.

Scholarship Procedures

Our administrative team collects scholarship requests and supporting documentation (first page of latest taxes, number of dependents, and extenuating circumstances form) from any applicant who wishes to apply.  Scholarship applications are reviewed and awarded twice a year (in March and in May).  Scholarships are awarded according to the schedule above. Camp Idlewild awards our scholarship fund each year on a first-come first-served basis.  When our scholarship fund is spent, we stop awarding scholarships for that year.

Full scholarship ~$500-~$1000

½ scholarship ~$250-~$500

¼ scholarship ~$125-~$250

GRANTS FOR RESIDENTIAL OR DAY CAMP

Each agency lists its scholarship process and requirements very clearly. Click on the links and see how it works! Most scholarships are on a first-come-first-served basis, so get these applications in early. Many of them require proof of financial need.
