Camp Scholarships for Scouts
Your support can help a Scout attend camp!
"This summer was my most memorable summer yet. I got to spend time with my Dad and older brother camping before my brother goes to college in the fall. I was part of the OA call-out which my family was a part of. I also earned my final Eagle merit badge for my Eagle rank. It truly was an exciting week at camp made possible by your generosity."
– Christopher, Troop 3524
Because of support from you, your donation to the Campership Program helps hundreds of Scouts 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, try new hobbies and make lifelong friends.
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 $65,000 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 $375 per youth participant in Scouts BSA to attend a week-long session of summer resident camp.
