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.

Scholarships are in place for those with financial need. They’re limited: please consider carefully before assuming you qualify for one.
