Youth Summer Camps- Regional Scholarship Request Form

 

Thanks to the generosity of congregations and individuals in the Region, the Region can provide some camp scholarship funds each year. Please note, scholarships cover ½ the camp fee, cannot be combined with Family Discounts, and are distributed “first come, first served”; with an eye to evenly distributing funds to campers all across the region.
