Scholarships

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 April 5, 2021 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.
