Whether this is your first time at camp, or you are a returning camper, we are so excited for this summer, and we can’t wait to meet you! Now that you are registered for camp, it’s time to start fund- raising to get the rest of your registration paid for. You can raise money to support your own camp fees first, and then help others. Let family, friends, and others in your community hear about diabetes and join your efforts to live well. Even if you pay for your own camp fees without fundraising, you can still help other kids who need assistance, and earn great prizes like a “Camp Champ” t-shirt, “Pie Your Favorite Counselor” and credits at the camp store!
Is being a Camp Champ the same as getting a scholarship?
No. Anyone can raise funds as a Camp Champ. Scholarships are awarded based on:
- Income level: Financial aid awarded to applicants below 250% of Federal Poverty Guideline.
- Special Circumstances: Having an extenuating circumstance like multiple people with a chronic illness in the household or a recent house fire.
If I get a camp scholarship, should I still raise funds to be a Camp Champ?
Yes. Scholarships are only available and possible because of fundraisers! No camper is ever turned away because of a lack of ability to pay. These costs are paid through fundraising. We need everyone to participate to keep camp possible! ANYONE can participate in Camp Champs to raise the cost of their camp, regardless of income.
What If I raise more than what it costs for me to go to camp?
Any amount you raise over the cost of your registration fee will go directly to another camper in need! The total registration fee for camp is $400, and campers who raise $500 or more will be recognized as a Camp Champ!
What do I get for being a Camp Champ?
Camp Champs are awarded with different prizes based on the amount of money they raise.
