Camp Carysbrook Summer Camp Scholarship Application
Here at Carysbrook, we believe that every girl who desires a place at camp should be able to attend – regardless of her family’s financial situation. With the help of generous donors and the Carysbrook Alumnae Association, we are very glad to be able to provide a limited number of need-based scholarships each summer.
Before submitting a scholarship application, please read the Objective Standards for Camp Scholarship Eligibility, available online and included as the final page on this form, and ensure that your camper is eligible.
Highest priority will go to children whose family income is at or below our income eligibility guidelines (see chart, above). However, consideration will be given to any family that expresses need. If you feel your family qualifies for a camp scholarship, please fill out the online form below. Finally, although we try to meet the needs of all families, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide your child with a full or partial scholarship.
