Each year we receive more applications than we have camperships to award. Please be aware that if you are applying for multiple children in your family, and we are able to award a campership to one of them, we do not guarantee camperships for the other(s). In addition, we do not guarantee that if you’ve been awarded a campership in a previous year that you will be awarded one again. Finally, all information on availability of camp sessions is at the sole discretion of the camp to which you are awarded the campership. If there are only certain sessions that work for your schedule, please check with the camp to inquire about availability before you apply. Campers must enroll separately with the participating camp and the camperships are paid directly to the camp.

 

To apply for a campership:

1. Complete and submit the appropriate online Campership Application Form (you will be using Submittable which requires you to create an account):

2. Please send this Campership Reference Form to your references and ask them to upload it before the deadline above. (3 references for Overnight Camperships, 1 reference for Day Camperships.)

An application will not be considered unless all of these pieces of information are received before the deadline.

You will receive a link to an online form that tracks received paperwork. It is the applicant’s responsibility to check this document to ensure all items are received by the deadline. We are a 100% volunteer run organization. We do not have an office or any administrative staff.

Camperships Offered

The Max and Marion Caldwell Foundation camperships are a cooperative effort between the Foundation, the participating camps and the camper’s family. The Foundation believes that by asking the family to participate financially, each partner is investing in the future of the selected camper.
All camperships require the family to pay a portion of the tuition.
