Scholarship Resources

At YMCA Camp Widjiwagan, we believe every child should experience a summer of imagination, wonder and adventure. As a nonprofit organization, we commit ourselves to removing financial barriers to camp through our camp scholarships.

We know summer camp is a huge financial investment. In 2024, we're committed to raising more scholarship funds than ever before to best assist our families and the community in attending camp, regardless of financial status.  

More than 800 families each year receive a camp scholarship. Scholarships typically range from 20% to 80% based on a family’s need. These families include: 

  • Children of deployed and deceased veterans 
  • Families of children with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and asthma 
  • Families in financial need

Financial assistance is made available through the generosity of individuals, corporations and other community partners who donate to the YMCA Send A Kid To Camp Campaign.

The scholarship application period for the 2024 summer season has now closed. We are processing all scholarship applications and will notify families of scholarship awards in mid-February 2024 with the specific date to be determined. If for any reason you are unable to accept the scholarship, your deposit will be refunded.
