INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
Scholarship Application

There is an online Scholarship Application that can be filled out during the online registration process. This form may be filled out by a church, or an individual. Scholarships will be awarded on or about May 15. In order to ensure that as many campers as possible benefit from this program, we request that you follow a simple application procedure:

  1. Personal Contribution: Consider what portion of camper fee you are able to pay personally and indicate that on the Scholarship Application. Due to the number of families in need of scholarships, it is not possible for us to provide full camper scholarships. The maximum amount that we can provide for any individual is $100 (or $50 for Kids Kamp or Pathfinders). The parent, church, or other sources may meet the remaining amount.
  2. Church Contribution: If you regularly attend a church, check to see if they are able to contribute a portion of the remaining sum. If so, they should fill in the contribution amount on the Scholarship Application and sign in the space provided. If they are not able to contribute, they should indicate so and sign to confirm this. If you do not attend a church, write “not applicable” in this space.
  3. Submit Application: Submit the Scholarship Application to Covenant Pines, and complete registration for your camper.

We sincerely hope that you will prayerfully complete this process. It is our desire that no child miss out on this opportunity due to financial hardship. If you feel that providing the remaining amount of the camper’s fee would prevent you from sending your child, please let us know and we will explore all options with you.

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please call the camp office at 218.768.2610 during business hours.
