It is Camp Westminster’s desire that all who wish to attend camp are able to do so regardless of financial circumstances. For those who are unable to afford the full tuition cost of camp, we offer a couple of different types of financial assistance to defray the cost. Depending on your circumstances, you may choose to apply for just one type of assistance, or a combination of both. Please note that all applications must be accompanied by a completed registration form and $75 deposit (fully refundable if no award is granted). If you have already registered online, please indicate that on your form.
Scholarship funds are generously given each year by various individuals and alumni who have a love for our Christian ministry and want to see all children given the opportunity to attend. Awards will be made until the limited funds are depleted.
Decisions to award assistance are made by a Scholarship Committee consisting of members of the Camp Westminster Board of Managers. The committee bases its approval on the criteria listed on the Financial Assistance Request, as well as budgetary issues, space availability, and any other considerations relevant to the effectiveness of the camp program.
In order to be considered for assistance, complete the Financial Assistance Request Form (please note that all questions must be answered). All scholarship requests must be submitted by April 1. Scholarship recipients will be notified by May 1. Any scholarship requests received after April 1 are subject to availability.
Camper Matching Fund Program
We strongly encourage campers to contribute to their own camp experience. Not only does this assist families financially, but it gives campers a deeper sense of ownership for their summer camp experience. Camp Westminster will match every dollar a child contributes to their registration fee up to $100. This program is limited to 200 campers, so early submission of your request is advisable. To participate in the Matching Fund program, Please complete the Camper Matching Program section of the Financial Assistance Request form, and submit a written explanation* of how your camper earned his or her contribution, including the amount earned, and we will match it. All Camper Matching Fund requests should be submitted by April 1. Any requests submitted after April 1 are subject to availability.
*The written explanation may be written by the camper or parent, listing the various things a camper has done to earn money (Ex. Yard work, 10 hours – $50, Pet-Sitting for a weekend – $20, etc.). As the camper’s fundraising efforts may extend into the summer, this may be submitted any time prior to the camper’s session.
