Returning from 2017:

Families needing financial assistance. Check with local service Clubs, (Camp Chris & Camp T where started by Lions Clubs, so we suggest you start there.) The vast majority of campers receive scholarships from their local Lions clubs. 🙂 To sign up, you may pay a deposit to hold your spot, $50-$100. It may be easier for families to receive scholarships if the funders know they are paying for part of the cost.
