Who Can Apply for Summer Camp Scholarships?

With an eager camper-to-be on your hands, it’s the perfect time to explore whether you qualify for scholarships for summer camps. While we can’t speak for all camps across America, Camp Galileo offers sliding-scale financial assistance to families based on financial need.

Our objective is to cultivate inclusive and diverse communities at each of our camps. We aim to foster a culture that nurtures children who are dedicated to envisioning and contributing to a better world. That includes providing financial assistance to the families that need it the most.

While we can’t guarantee a camp scholarship for every interested family, we encourage you to apply if you’re facing financial constraints or need financial assistance to make Camp Galileo accessible for your child.

We believe that every child should have access to programs that help them build the skills to thrive in today’s world, regardless of resources. So, if the only thing holding your little one back from attending Camp Galileo is the financial burden, consider some of the advantages that come with scholarships and grants for summer camps:

  • Inclusivity – Scholarships break down economic barriers, granting access to once-in-a-lifetime experiences to children from all backgrounds. By providing financial aid, we’re ensuring that more children can embrace their inner passionate explorers, visionary innovators and creative trailblazers.
  • Access to innovative activities – Scholarships open new and exciting doors filled with creative outlets that allow children to freely engage in enriching activities they might not have access to otherwise. At Camp Galileo, that includes STEAM projects, countless outdoor adventures and so much more.
  • Building confidence – With the help of grants and scholarships, children can spend time away from home in a supportive environment created to foster independence. As they navigate unfamiliar situations, make their own decisions and forge new friendships, they begin to build confidence, empowering them for future challenges and personal growth.
