Scholarship Information

In order to help with camp costs, Scholarships are awarded on a need basis. Applicants fill out YMCA provided forms and the YMCA reviews your application to confirm your financial needs. Based on this assessment the YMCA and MUUSA together provide the grant. Both MUUSA and the YMCA are committed to making the camp available to all and to provide need-based help. There are a limited number of need-based scholarships available on a first‐come basis, eligible for up to 100% of the cost of attending camp.
