Camp Scholarships for Scouts
Help Send a Scout to Camp!
“I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the gift of a scholarship to Many Point. I am very excited to go!” Pryce
“Because of your support, I was able to go to camp, which had a fishing dock at our campsite. I could fish whenever I wanted to!” Matthew
“I am really excited to go to camp and be the senior patrol leader because that means I get to lead my Troop to and from the activities personally!” JT
Because of support from you, your donation to the Youth Campership Program helps hundreds of children from low-income families, families in stress, and at-risk youth attend camp. Because of your generosity, you give young people the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature, the joy of fellowship, and the sheer fun of jumping off the boat dock.
Your gift keeps the camping experience affordable for all young people. The value of outdoor activities cannot be overstated. Youth learn faster about themselves and their abilities when they are outside of their day-to-day surroundings. Please help continue the tradition and expectation of a great camp experience for everyone.
Make a gift to the Youth Campership Program today and hundreds of kids will say, “Thank You!”
In 2023, over $60,000 in scholarships were made available to youth to participate in camp. Although our camps remain affordable, with these uncertain economic times, we project the need for camp scholarships to increase this year. Camp scholarships are not just for summer camp, we have Scouts going to fall and winter camps who are requesting help, too.
Consider joining other Scouters in helping a disadvantaged youth go to camp. On average, it costs of $325 per youth participant in Scouts BSA to attend a week-long session of summer resident camp.
The need is great, the need is real, and with the support of caring individuals like you, we will be able to continue to teach our young people in an outdoor classroom how to be leaders in the world.
