Should everyone apply for a scholarship? No, only those who would be unable to attend camp without some financial aid should apply.
Where does the scholarship money come from?
FCA is a faith-funded ministry & all of the money necessary for the ministry to continue is raised locally. Most of the money comes from individuals like you.
Is the scholarship money wasted if no one applies for it? No, it supports the ongoing local ministry of our staff to kids, coaches, and others.
How much should I request? Request only as much as needed.
Do you give full scholarships? Only in extreme situations. We want each camper to take on at least a small part of the responsibility of paying for camp.
Is other scholarship money available? Yes, you should approach your school’s FCA huddle, your local civic clubs (e.g. Kiwanis), and your local church for financial assistance. Our staff can help make contact for you, if needed.
