2018 Summer Camp Scholarships & Financial Assistance
We strive to make it financially possible for every child to have the opportunity to attend our summer camps. Scholarship applications must be submitted by June 1, 2018. Scholarship assistance is awarded on a first come first serve basis. We strive to give priority to families whose income falls below federal poverty guidelines, and then to families that meet federal poverty guidelines. At this time we do not have a designated scholarship fund. However, we can offer a 35% discount on our weekly camps if you qualify for one or more of the following:
- SNAP Benefits
- Free & Reduced Lunch Plan
- Oregon Health Plan
Please provide documentation to verify your eligibility for one of the above programs. CEC can offer a reduced rate for three weeks of camp per child per household. If your household is approved for a scholarship your fee will be reduced by 35% and will come with a volunteer commitment of 3.5 hours per camp.
After a scholarship award is approved the recipient will get an email of eligibility. This email will describe the scholarship award and outline directions to sign up for predetermined volunteer opportunities. If you have special skills or experience that you are interested in sharing with our programs you may describe them in your scholarship application. Awards will not be applied until recipients have signed up for volunteer hours.
