Farm Camp Scholarships

Thanks to a very generous grant from the Dyson Foundation we are thrilled to offer 24 full scholarship camper slots and two full scholarship CIT slots, in addition to 12 sliding scale scholarships.  Please note that all scholarship applicants must also complete a Farm Camp Registration Form. Paper registration forms are available by request. Acceptance to Farm Camp's scholarship programs is not guaranteed until you receive notification confirming your spot from Common Ground Farm.

Full Scholarships include one week of full day summer camp, before and after care if needed, and U-Pick. Please note that this year we have not been able to confirm a meal service. Applications are available both online and as a PDF or hardcopy. Please contact Sember at sember@commongroundfarm.org to have a printed application mailed to you. Full Scholarships are provided to families who are able to demonstrate significant financial need. Adult caregivers of full scholarship recipients agree to participate in a phone interview prior to acceptance and agree to complete a survey after the camp program is complete.

Sliding Scale Scholarships cover 50% of Farm Camp tuition. Eligible families for this scholarship are able to demonstrate that full tuition presents a hardship, but are able to cover half the cost of a week of summer camp. Interested families must complete the Sliding Scale Scholarship Application. Families will be notified of scholarship awards over email, with directions on registration once their application has been processed.
