Financial Assistance & Camper Scholarships

CAMPER SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2020-21

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

When you are completing our on-line registration, the financial assistance portion will be towards the end of the application. In order to be eligible for financial assistance, it is required to complete the entire application as well as the section for a camper scholarship. With our camp being a newly launched program, our scholarships are limited at this time. Our organization will be fundraising throughout the year so that we will be able to provide these scholarships to those families who are in need. Camp scholarships will be given on a first come, first serve basis while the funds are available. We encourage our families to reach out to their community/civic groups as possible scholarship opportunities.
