Summer camp scholarship deadline fast approaching
Summer camp registration is open, and scholarship dollars are still available — but the extended deadline of Wednesday, June 13 is fast approaching. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and all families are encouraged to apply for a scholarship for any of the Y’s camps.
Camp Knickerbocker on beautiful Knickerbocker Lake in Boothbay provides children ages 3 to 14 with safe and exciting opportunities to explore, learn, create and discover the world around them, all under the guidance of caring, enthusiastic, and trained leaders and role models.
Thanks to the “Send a Kid to Camp” fund drive at the Boothbay Region YMCA and the annual “Stackhouse Event” at the CLC YMCA, both Y’s are able to offer camp scholarships. Save the date for this year’s Stackhouse Event: July 3 at 5 Ledgewood Lane in Bristol. In addition to the much-anticipated hot dog eating contest, the event includes music, silent auction, face painting, kids’ pie eating contest, paintball shootout and more. You don’t want to miss it!
Payment plans and financial aid are also available in addition to camp scholarships. The Y believes that all children in our community, regardless of income, deserve the opportunity to experience summer camp.
