Update 4/20/20: Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our camp family and community. Due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the very difficult decision to cancel summer camp through August 21, 2020. We will be in touch with families regarding next steps.

Schoolhouse of Wonder is a place where everyone can play, learn, and grow toward being their best selves.

We understand that the cost of camp is a barrier for some families. Each year we partner with individuals, businesses, and community organizations to make scholarship funds available to as many families as possible. We offer full and half-scholarships for both campers and CITs.

  • Need-Based. We offer both half and full scholarships to take different levels of need into account.
  • Priority is given to applications received before the February 29th, 2020 deadline. We are committed to offering need-based financial assistance to as many children as possible within our scholarship budget.  You may apply late, but priority will be given to applications received before the deadline.
  • One application per three children. The online application will allow you to apply for up to three children in one family/household. If you are applying for more than three children in the same family/household, please submit an additional application to accommodate them.
  • Confidential. All information provided in this application will be kept confidential and will be used only for the purpose of determining scholarship eligibility.
  • We value diversity. Schoolhouse of Wonder awards scholarships regardless of race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or other aspects of diversity.


The priority deadline for scholarships, February 29, 2020, has passed. Applications are still being accepted, but priority will be given to applications submitted before the deadline.

  • To apply: Complete the online Scholarship Application in English or Spanish.
  • Award Notification: We will announce Scholarship awards by mid-March 2020.
  • Registration: Registration will be required by mid-April 2020.

Please note: Scholarships do not include transportation, food, or supplies such as bug spray, water shoes, or backpacks. Please let us know on the application if you will need assistance with these things. We will offer support as we are able.
