Financial Assistance

CAMPER SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2021 (available for Summer Camp only)

Camp Idlewild provides scholarships each year, based on need and availability of funds. The Campership Application is part of our regular Summer Camp Application process.

When you are completing your registration, the financial assistance portion will be towards the end of the Summer Camp Application. In order to be eligible for financial assistance, it is required to complete the entire application as well as the Campership Application. With our Camp being a newly launched program, our scholarships are limited to Summer Camp Only. Camp Idlewild will be fundraising throughout the year so that we will be able to provide assistance to as many families as possible. Camp scholarships will be given on a first come, first serve basis while funds are available. We offer opportunities for partial financial assistance only. We encourage families to reach out to their community and civic groups for possible scholarship opportunities.
