Our Impact: Outcomes
25,000 Camperships and Counting
Total camperships SCOPE has funded in the Northeast, Midwest, Southeast and Southwest regions of the United States since 1991 with support from individuals, camps, businesses, and foundations.
With your support, SCOPE partnered with over 40 nonprofit, American Camp Association (ACA) accredited, resident camps in the summer of 2021 to provide over 700 camperships to children of families who otherwise could not afford a camp experience for their child.
$1,300 sends a child to camp in the Northeast for 2 weeks; $500 in the Midwest, Southeast, and Southwest.
Children enrolled in public school/public charter school, ages 7-16 and qualify for the USDA Free or Reduced Lunch Program are eligible to apply for SCOPE campership support.
SCOPE Partner Camps
In 2021, SCOPE partnered with 43 different nonprofit, overnight summer camps around the United States, accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA).
Each SCOPE partner camp is required to maintain compliance with ACA standards, accept campers at agreed upon SCOPE allocated tuition cost and refrain from asking assisted families for any additional fees.
SCOPE partner camps recruit campers through their community partnerships by providing SCOPE campership applications to families that meet the requirements for SCOPE funding.
SCOPE’s mission is to support residential camp programs. Not all SCOPE partner camps listed below will receive SCOPE campership support in 2021 due to individual camp plans to operate under Covid regulations.
