Camp Connections Bursary Application

Bursary Eligibility: (Please read carefully before completing bursary application)
Applications for financial assistance will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

Age: Applicants for camp scholarship must be between 8 and 18 years of age.

Financial need: The applicant and the applicant’s sponsor must be unable to afford the full camp
fee. Applicants that can show they are willing to work hard to save up or raise funds to cover a
portion of the registration fee will be more likely to receive assistance. Personal initiative will be
evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

It is important that the sponsor and the applicant attempt to take advantage of the guaranteed
subsidies offered by Camp Connections such as the FOCC early registration subsidy or the bring a
friend discount. This shows that the applicant is trying their best to afford the opportunity to
come to camp.

Personal desire: The applicant should indicate why they would like to attend camp. We will be
looking for a desire to be personally affected by camp attendance. While applicants need not be
of the same religious background as Camp Connections (i.e. Christian), they must indicate their
willingness to participate fully in all camp activities including those of spiritual nature.

Extenuating Circumstances: Another consideration will be whether someone is experiencing
some form of life crisis (depression, family problems, etc.) which give extenuating circumstances
and which creates a need for camp as an assist toward regaining balance in life.
