Funding Camperships

With your support, SCOPE is partnering with 57 nonprofit, American Camp Association (ACA) accredited, resident camps in the summer of 2023 to provide over 1,000 camperships to children of families who otherwise could not afford a camp experience for their child.

$1,500 sends a child to camp in the Northeast for 2 weeks; $750 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 2023, SCOPE is partnering with 57 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.

By funding camperships, SCOPE support reinforces the connection between academic achievement and the enriched recreational and educational experiences at summer camp.
