Need help with the cost of sending your child to camp? Camp Tannadoonah offers need-based scholarships for camp in the form of full or partial “camperships.” The campership fund is for campers whose families demonstrate financial need (it is not a merit-based scholarship). For most of our funding sources, eligibility is based on qualifying for free or reduced lunch according to the federal guidelines for school lunch.
If you would like to apply for financial aid, please download and send in a campership application. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, beginning after March 1. Our committee meets to review applications monthly; you will be notified no later than May 15th regarding funding.
We will continue to accept applications as long as funds are still available. The earlier you apply, the better your chances of getting funds; most years, our funds run out by April 1. Campership funds for 2019 will be awarded for Session 1 and Mini Week only. Session 1 is scheduled for June 16 – 22 and Mini Week is June 30 – July 3. If your camper is not able to attend Session 1 or Mini Week, please contact us and we will try to accommodate.
If you are applying for campership funding, please do not register your camper for camp until you have received notification of any campership funds that have been awarded. If you register your camper before receiving notification of funding, your deposit is non-refundable.
Campers who have received campership funding in the past are only eligible for funding up to 50% of the cost of camp for future summers (except under exceptional circumstances). However, you can still offset the cost of camp by participating in our Earn Your Way to camp programs.
