Camp Fees & Scholarships
Heritage Camp’s model means that we keep camp fees very low and that those who can, donate a bit extra at camp registration and at various times throughout the year.
We intentionally and thoughtfully utilize volunteers because of our values around family engagement, but also because it allows camp to be affordable for most families.
We provide approximately 50 scholarships each year because inclusivity is one of our core values.
We generally award a scholarship to every family who applies, but more than likely it will not cover the full cost of camp. This decision is based on the number of other applicants who have applied and the funds they have requested. We ask you to contribute as much as you can toward your camp costs.
When registering online, you will have to pay the full amount via credit card for your camp fees (due to the way the registration system works online), then when you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive a reimbursement check from HCAF.
The scholarship awards will be made soon after the deadline. You must complete a scholarship application in order to be considered.
Scholarships may also be awarded for lodging costs, but you will have to pay your lodging deposit when you reserve your space online or via phone. If you are awarded scholarship funds for lodging, those funds will be included in your scholarship award check that will be mailed to you before camp, which you can use to pay your lodging balance.
Scholarships are awarded based on the following criteria: family size; family income; number of family members attending Heritage Camp this summer; willingness of adult family members to assist in camp preparations or during camp above and beyond assigned volunteer positions, and extenuating family circumstances.
The following table shows income guidelines that may be used when deciding on scholarships, but a reminder that this is not our only criteria.
|Family Size||Income Level|
Scholarship Application Deadlines
Since scholarship funding is dependent upon how many applicants apply for each camp, and the funding requested, we are unable to accept any scholarship applications after the camp’s deadline. Scholarships will be awarded and distributed within 10 days of the deadline.
|Chinese II||July 1|
|Domestic Adoption Camp||July 1|
|Latin American||May 1|
|Russian/Eastern European/Central Asian||June 1|
You must be registered for camp before applying for a scholarship. Scholarships are awarded approximately one month prior to your camp. Please complete the form thoroughly and submit your scholarship application. Thank you!
