YMCA Camp of Maine will not turn anyone away for an inability to pay. Through generous donations by individuals, companies, grants, and foundations, Scholarships are available for campers who need assistance coming to YMCA Camp of Maine. The process for applying is easy and confidential.
Scholarships based on need do not cover 100% of the tuition. Payment plans can be established to help families manage paying for camp. Occasionally, additional funding is available that camp can help families gain access to.
The Military Scholarship program is funded through individual donations and donations given by organizations. This program is available for campers who have a parent/guardian actively serving in the military, or activated with the Maine National Guard.
After you have completed the online registration form and paid a minim deposit of $50 per week per camper, download the Scholarship Application and return it to the office with the following information: a letter stating the impact camp will have on your family; a copy of your latest tax return; proof of income; proof of federal &/or state assistance; and other supporting documentation you feel will help the Scholarship Committee reach a better decision.
The Scholarship Committee reviews applications periodically through the end of May. Once a decision has been made, an email will be sent announcing the scholarship amount.
