Campers are welcome to apply for one or both types of scholarship. Campers MUST be registered for camp online by remitting the $100 registration fee in order to be eligible for consideration by the selection committee. Completed applications and additional materials must be postmarked by Friday, April 14, 2017.
Financial Aid Application
Merit Scholarship Application
We will allow a few days after the postmark deadline for materials to arrive and then will do our best to review and make decisions quickly. Awards will be applied to camper accounts and recipients notified via email.
We also suggest contacting your school booster programs, local businesses, family, and friends for additional funding opportunities.
Fundraising Opportunities to Offset Camp Tuition
We recommend using a combination of fundraising methods. Cash and check donations that go directly to you are always the best way to fundraise without a middle man or a percentage being taken out. However, you might want to create a Go Fund Me page for online donation fundraising that can reach more people through email and social media. Some people prefer to buy items instead of giving directly, so you might also want to partner with one of the other organization listed below to sell cookies or catalogue items.
We have spoken directly to the fundraising companies listed below and they are ready to help Curry campers fundraise to offset camp tuition. You don’t have to be part of a group to use the services below. You can contact them and set up your own fundraising campaign as an individual. You can sell items through email and social media too! Read through each of the different fundraising companies below and select the one(s) that you would like to use and call them to get started today!
Go Fund Me
This online fundraising website does not sell items but is a great way to help organize a fundraising campaign online for you. Go Fund Me does take 8% of any money contributed but the rest goes to you. If your friends or family want to directly donate money to you online this is a great way for them to be able to. You can post your Go Fund Me page to emails, texts and your social media platforms. www.gofundme.com
