“It only takes a spark to get a fire going and soon all those around can warm up to its glowing; That’s how it is at Carysbrook, once you’ve experienced it. Her love will live within our hearts; You want to pass it on…”
Many current Carysbrook families as well as Alumnae have inquired about opportunities to give back to camp. The Camp Carysbrook Alumnae Association builds a bridge between past and present campers and staff and has been integral in establishing ways to stay connected as well as to give back to Carysbrook.
We have partnered with the American Camping Association to establish a means of raising tax-deductible funds for camper scholarships to Carysbrook. The purpose of the scholarship fund at Carysbrook is to promote diversity at camp in line with the mission and philosophy by ensuring that more girls have the opportunity to experience Carysbrook regardless of “economic, racial, geographic, religious, ethnic and social” background. When you donate to the Camp Carysbrook Scholarship Fund you bridge the gap so that a girl can have a summer to remember and make a difference that will last a lifetime. Each year, the Camp Carysbrook Alumnae Association provides scholarships “to campers who cannot afford the entire camp fee and whose presence at camp will broaden the composition of the camp community” (American Camp Association Scholarship Program – For Camps).
The Camp Carysbrook Alumnae Association Scholarship Committee defines the criteria for selection with the ACA and selects recipients. Click on the DONATE button above to make a tax-deductible donation and invest in a summer to remember.
Donors who wish to contribute by check to our scholarship program can do so by making the check out to the American Camp Association designating “Camp Carysbrook Scholarship” in the memo line. Checks should be mailed to:
