As a non-profit organization, our tuition charges reflect the costs of running the camp and of gratefully acknowledging the time, effort, and experience our instructors bring. But we want to help teachers and pastors to be able to join us. Thus, we are teaming up with donors to offer a variety of scholarships.
We have a limited number of scholarships available. Please consider carefully before assuming that you qualify for a scholarship, which are specifically in place for those with financial need.
Full-time teacher: Indicates that you are currently in the classroom a minimum of 30 hours a week, and plan to teach again next year. Home school teachers may be considered based on the same qualifications.
Music teachers: Those who teach music, but are not full-time teachers.
What to Expect
Only one scholarship per person or married couple will be considered.
On the application, check the box indicating you will be applying for a scholarship.
Because scholarship requests take some time to process, scholarship applicants should choose the Deposit Payment option.
If your request is approved, we will apply the scholarship amount to your account and the total you will pay on May 1 will be the adjusted amount (tuition minus your scholarship).
Applications must be submitted by March 31.
Full Scholarships cover the full cost of tuition, currently $330USD. These do not cover the cost of lodging, books, music, and so on.
