Scholarships

We’re here to help.

We understand that sometimes circumstances put a strain on the family budget making financial assistance necessary. Camp Fire Alaska Scholarships are designed to help families through those periods of financial difficulty. We are deeply grateful to the individual donors, foundations, and corporations who provide funding to our agency so we can provide families with financial assistance and provide all youth with the opportunity to experience Camp Fire programs. Please find our School & Summer Adventure Scholarship Application and our Camp K & Camp Si-La-Meo Scholarship Application below.

ABOUT SCHOLARSHIPS

  • Scholarships are a reduction in fees for a defined period of time.  They are based on a family’s need and the available funds to cover the reduction.  We encourage parents to apply.
  • Apply early. Processing takes time and funds are limited.
  • Answer all questions. Applications with unanswered questions will be returned causing a delay in processing.
  • In order to process your application, we must verify your income. Attach copies of the last two pay stubs for all wage earners in the household. Without these attachments, applications will be held until received.
  • Camp scholarships are awarded for one session of camp only.

AFTER YOU APPLY

  • Applications are verified and reviewed for approval.
  • Applicants will be notified regarding the status of their scholarship application by mail and email. Please allow up to four weeks for processing after submitting completed application.
  • Applications may be placed on a waiting list until scholarship funds become available.
  • School Programs: Monthly payments are required once your child starts attending program, and while you are waiting to hear about your scholarship. Payments are due on the first of each month.
