INFORMATION ABOUT FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION
Financial Aid Application

There is an online Financial Aid Form that can be filled out during the online registration process
May be filled out by Church or 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 cooperate by following a simple application procedure.

1. Consider what portion of camper fee you are able to pay personally and indicate that on the Financial Aid Application. Due to the number of families in need of financial aid, 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, your church or other sources, may meet the remaining amount.

2. We will be happy to work out an installment payment plan if that will make payment easier.

3. If you are regular attendees of a church, see if they might be able to contribute a portion of the remaining sum. They should fill in the amount 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.

4. Return the application to Covenant Pines along with registration forms for the campers in need (unless already sent).

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 me 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.
