Camperships (Financial Assistance)

Camperships can help offset the cost of our camp program for up to two weeks and are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. Funding for camperships is provided by the Heather Rosborough Fund, the Biondo Family Foundation, and Buck-a-Book donations.

To apply for a campership, submit the following documents to PEEC:

  • A copy of your National School Lunch Program (NSLP) eligibility letter (Determine eligibility here using chart on second page of document)
  • A letter explaining the financial need of your family
  • A list of which sessions you’d like to send your child to camp

After PEEC receives the items listed above, you will be contacted about your family’s eligibility. Unfortunately, PEEC cannot guarantee, confirm or hold spaces for campers until a registration form and deposit are received.

Financial aid may cover up to 50% of a camper's tuition for up to two weeks.

If you have any questions or need assistance with this process, call PEEC at 570-828-2319, or email our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
