EDUCATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
In 2007, an Educational Scholarship Program was implemented for former campers who wanted to further their education after high school. Since education is stressed throughout all Camp Care-A-Lot programs, Camp Care-A-Lot offers Post High School Scholarships to trade school, college, university and work apprenticeships. The Camp Care-A-Lot Educational Scholarship Fund was established to provide financial assistance to former Camp Care-A-Lot campers who will be or are already attending a post high school institution, including but not limited to trade schools, colleges or universities. Any former camper, presently passing their classes, may apply whether they plan on attending school part-time or full-time. Amounts awarded may differ each semester and differ among applicants. Students may apply multiple times as long as they are in good standing with their present institution. The awards will be directly paid to the institution of each students’ choice and may be used towards tuition, fees, and/or books.
