Summer Camp Camperships
If you want your child to experience camp, we want that too! Friends of Camp Roosevelt Firebird a 501c3 non profit organization offers "camperships" to financially support families. After reviewing each application, financial grants of varying amounts are awarded. The campership application is simple and straightforward. Camperships supplement a camper's tution fees. The amount of each campership is based upon a family's circumstances. Please do not assume you won't qualify. We understand camp is a costly investment.
We Make This Work Together!
Tution is covered by the 1) family 2) the non-profit 3) and the camp itself. All parties share in order to make this work. Sharing the financial burden enables our camp to have a truly diverse camper population each summer.
