Scholarships

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.

Amanda Hochstetler-Yoder Scholarship

This scholarship is offered in memory of the donors’ grandmother, Amanda Hochstetler-Yoder (1910-2010), who taught her children (and by extension, grandchildren) to love music, especially singing.

The Amanda Hochstetler-Yoder Scholarship is open to women at Virginia camp who have been teachers or college students within the past year.

Part of the mission of Mountain View Nursing Home is to help their staff grow and mature, and to help support churches. They believe that music education, particularly with a focus on congregational singing, can help do that.

This scholarship provides $500 each to 2 full-time students at Virginia Camp, and prioritizes 1) former Mountain View volunteers, 2) those who have been in, or currently are in service [significantly reduced wages for the kingdom’s sake, or school teachers] and 3) those with a focus on excellent congregational singing.
