Camp Scholarship FAQ
How many scholarships are available?
An average of 5 scholarship slots per camp session are available. The distribution of scholarships is at the discretion of the camp coordinator dependent on demand, so it's possible that one session may have 15 scholarship students and two others have 0. We do our best to provide this theatre experience where it is most beneficial to all involved!
Can I apply for more than one session of financial aid per child?
It is our goal to provide these experiences for as many students as possible each season, so in general, if your child is awarded a scholarship, they will receive it for one session only. In areas where both scholarship demand and traditional demand are lower, it's possible that a student may awarded a scholarship for multiple sessions if we have not yet reached our scholarship cap.
When are applications due?
Applications are due March 1st for spring camp sessions and by May 1st for summer camp sessions.

Can I register my student and then apply for a scholarship?
Please complete the scholarship application first if you are hoping to receive a scholarship.
Complete the Scholarship Application before March 1st for Spring Camp and before May 1st for Summer Camp.
We will announce scholarship recipients by March 15 for Spring Camp and by May 15 for Summer Camp.
After scholarships are announced in March and in May: If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive specific instructions on how to register. If you are not awarded a scholarship this season, you will be eligible to register through the standard process if your family chooses to do so.
What if I miss the deadline?
When we receive your application form past the deadline, we'll reach out individually. Any applications received after the corresponding deadline are reviewed at the discretion of the camp coordinator, and may not be accepted.
How much do your scholarships cover?
In order to provide assistance to as many families as possible, we request that each family contribute 20%-75% of the regular registration fee for their selected camp. We ask that you carefully consider your ability and include that information on your application. If financial hardship is too great, a request to waive any contribution may be submitted.
When will I find out if my child is awarded a scholarship?
Scholarship announcements are made between March 1-15 for spring camp sessions and between May 1-15 for summer camp sessions.
If my child isn't awarded a scholarship, what other options do I have for financial assistance?
- Check in with local businesses and service organizations. They are sometimes able to support area students with program subsidies on a case-by-case basis
- If your family celebrates holidays with gifts, use the camp experience as a gift for your child
