Camperships

Camperships are available to help with the weekly cost of Summer Camp. Individuals seeking assistance can request up to $200 per week to make the camp experience more accessible. Our team will take careful consideration of each applicant’s circumstances and final decisions on camperships will be made by May 1.  

  • Does not cover the $50 deposit cost 
  • Families can apply for assistance per session (9 sessions) 
  • Campership forms are available to fill out after registration  

Drop Off and Pick-Up

    • Campers must be dropped off and picked up by someone on their Authorized Pick-Up list.
    • At pick-up, camp staff will ask to see a government ID (Wisc ID card is acceptable) and ensure you are on the camper’s Authorized Pick-Up list.
    • If you are picking up multiple campers (siblings, friends, etc.), please ensure you are listed on ALL campers’ Authorized Pick-Up lists.
