The heart of every camp is the staff that serves the basic needs of our camp community. Consider applying for a half or full scholarship in one of the camp’s departments, most notably in the kitchen and dining area. It is a great way to get to know other campers and become one of us in our staff community.

Full and half non-teaching scholarships are available for campers 14 and older.

Scholarship recipients are expected to attend the entire camp. Certain positions absolutely require arrival on Thursday, the day before camp opens. We also expect scholarship recipients to stay until we break down camp by noon on Tuesday. Half-scholarships generally involve one shift a day for a couple of hours. There are a wide variety of times so that you can still attend camp activities that you most enjoy.

Affordability Policy for Families with Children: Kids Camp Half-Scholarships for Parents
Our community also offers scholarship programs for parents who bring children under age 13:

  • For parents with children under 5, one parent/guardian per child can attend camp at one half of the normal registration fee and have no assigned staff position other than taking care of their children.
  • Parents or guardians of children age 5 or older can apply for a half scholarship to either: 1) serve on staff at Kid’s Camp (contact Kid’s Camp co-director Lori Thweatt at … or 2) serve on staff elsewhere in the camp (contact Aziza Riely at or 573-999-6635).
