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.
PEEC will award four merit based camperships to attend residential camp programs to those who show interest in environmental education, sustainable living, and an appreciation for nature. These camperships will cover 50% ($375) of a residential program, leaving the family to fund the remaining 50% ($375).
To be eligible, potential campers must submit a typed essay describing 1) why attending a week of residential camp at PEEC is important to them and 2) how they incorporate environmental education, sustainable living, and/or an appreciation for nature into their lives in the past, the present and/or potentially the future.
Essays must be typed and 400-500 words (usually about 2-3 pages double spaced) and submitted as a Microsoft Word document or PDF. Qualified campers will be entering grades 5 through 11 in the fall of 2017 and must write the essay themselves. One entry per camper.
- Full name of camper and grade they will be entering in the fall of 2017
- The specific residential program applicant is interested in attending
