We would love for every child to attend camp, no matter their economic situation. Through generous donations from donors and our camp partners, Leadership Academy is able to offer camp scholarships, camperships, to help make camp more affordable for more families.
We are still providing the same high quality, safe, fun and inclusive activities for children while building a diverse community where every person is valued. The subsidies for camp are completely confidential and in no way affects the camp experience for your camper. Camp Counselors do not know which children receive camperships. Your personal information and identity will remain confidential.
Please look through our campership options and choose the one that best suits your family. Please note these are limited funds and we ask you to use the scholarships only if necessary. In order to allow as many children as possible to attend camp, camperships will be limited to one session (week) per child a season.
Campership applications will be reviewed by the administrative team and distributed on a needs basis in first-come, first-served orders until funding is exhausted.
The application process includes the following steps:
- Complete the online application. When completing the application, you will be asked if you are applying for a full scholarship (with a $50 registration fee) or a pay-what-you-can rate for camp.
- Complete a separate application per child, per week. The online application requires that you choose which camp and week you would like to attend, incorrect information can delay the process. You can see a full list of our camps and dates on our registration website. You will receive an automatic confirmation email when your application is received.
- Accept your scholarship. Once your application is reviewed by the administrator, you will receive an email with a scholarship award amount or denial of an application. You must reply to accept your scholarship award amount.
- Register for camp. After accepting the scholarship amount, you will receive an email with specific information for your camper’s scholarship. You must register your camper following the instructions to confirm the scholarship. The remaining balance for camp can be paid at the time of registration or using a payment plan. The full balance is due 30 days before the camp session begins.
