Camp Scholarship

Keeping Camp Newaygo Affordable

2023 REGISTRATION OPENS DECEMBER 6TH, 2022 AT 6PM EST!


If you are unable to pay the $75 Overnight Camp or $30 Day Camp deposit, please fill out the scholarship form below and you will be contacted after February 1

We understand that it is often difficult to be able to offer your child all the experiences you hope. We may be able to provide help for them to attend Coed Day Camp or Girls’ Overnight Camp this summer. Camp Newaygo works to raise the funds to provide more than 150 scholarships each year. Scholarships will be awarded to those who qualify based on yearly income, and number of children who are living in the household. To apply, simply fill out the scholarship application, and send either your campers free/reduced lunch letter from the school OR IRS 1040 from within two weeks, or as soon as possible.  Scholarships are awarded on a first come first serve basis. Please fill out the scholarship and submit your IRS 1040 and proof of free or reduced lunch as soon as possible.  If your child’s school provides free lunch to all students, we do require a different proof of need such as a Bridge Card, Tax Refund, Snap benefit, or Medicaid Card.
