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.

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.

Verheijen Family Campership

Bart started off as a camper at the age of 7 – from the Netherlands!  In his final summer on staff, he donated his paycheck to the foundation in hopes of giving a child the same life-altering experience he had at Kennolyn. It was such a ful-filling experience that once gainfully-employed, he decided to endow his own campership!
