CAMPERSHIP APPLICATION DEADLINE: April 15.
In difficult economic times coming to camp is not always affordable for every family.
Unirondack is committed to making camp available to everyone. Our goal is to turn no one away on the basis of financial need. Unirondack’s “Campership Fund” makes this possible.
Unirondack Camperships are available for families who cannot afford the full cost of one week of camp. If you would like to send your child to camp but, due to your financial circumstances, are unable to afford the full amount for one week of camp, you may apply for a Campership.
NOTE: The Board Policy on Camperships has been amended as of March 20, 2016.
The purpose of the Unirondack Campership Program continues to be to enable campers who are unable to afford one week of camp to attend Unirondack.
However, the stipulation that campers receiving Camperships can only register for one session of camp has been made more flexible.
Campers receiving camperships for one week of camp who are able to find additional funding for a second week of camp can now register for a 2nd week of camp (if there is room in that session).
We ask that you exhaust all other sources of support (your congregation, extended family members, social service agencies, an after school job, etc) prior to applying for a Unirondack Campership. Our Camperships are almost entirely funded by donations from the families of other campers, friends, alumni of Unirondack, and an occasional congregation. Each year we must raise enough to meet the needs of every family who needs assistance.
After you apply online you will receive an email or phone call from our Board Member in charge of Camperships to discuss your family’s specific needs. Each Campership application we receive is treated on a case by case basis. The Campership awarded is highly dependent on your family’s individual situation. To accommodate as many campers as we can, Camperships serve to lower the cost of sending your child to camp and do not generally cover the full tuition amount.
NOTE: All information on your Campership Application and all information discussed over the phone remains confidential.
For those who would like to help another camper attend camp, you can add a campership amount to your registration form when registering your child for camp. Or you can CLICK HERE to donate to our Campership Fund. Turning no one away is an ambitious goal — a goal we cannot reach without your help.
