Jean Galloway Memorial Scholarship Fund

purpose

To enable young people with spiritual or financial needs to attend camp at a cost that is affordable to them.

In Mark 10:14, Christ commands his disciples: "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God" (ESV). Today, finances are often the biggest hindrance from attending camp. The JGM Scholarship Fund was founded to remove this hindrance.

procedure

Scholarships are determined on an individual basis. The Financial Aid Form is designed in such a way as to give the participant/guardian the ability to determine his/her own level of need.

We ask that you contribute as much as you can to your child's week of camp. Many families need financial assistance. The more you can provide to help your child, the further we can stretch our scholarship dollars to help more families. 

Woodlands will scholarship up to $??? of one (1) camp weekend's fees per camper. Each camper may only attend one (1) weekend of camp on scholarship. Full scholarships are not available.

We will hold 10% of our space in each week of overnight camp for scholarship campers. Availability on our website DOES NOT reflect scholarship availability. Please contact the camp office for actual space available when applying for a scholarship.

Scholarships are available until all scholarship spots are filled OR until all scholarship funds have been depleted. Please be prepared with a second choice week in the even that your first choice week is unavailable.

how to apply

Thank you so much for your interest in applying for a scholarship. Our scholarships have closed for the summer. We will be accepting scholarships for the Spring of 2018 in ????February.
