Camp Namanu Scholarship Application


Application Details

Applications are due April 1st, 2019.

Applications received after April 1st will be reviewed on a rolling basis in the event that additional aid funds and capacity become available. Applicants will be contacted if funds are available.

  • Applicants must be registered and have paid a registration deposit before submitting a financial aid application.
  • Choose your first choice of session dates when registering. Camp Fire will do its best to honor the chosen session date but may offer assistance for another session.
  • Financial Aid applicants are subject to the following auto-payment schedule: 20% of camp fees on Jan 16th, 20% of camp fees on Mar 19th, and May 26th, 2019. Additional voluntary payments may be made toward the balance at any time, and alternate payment arrangements can be made through the Registrar by calling 971-340-1608.
  • The final balance is due on May 26th, 2019.
  • Financial Aid award amounts are 30%, 50% or 70%.  Auto-payments are intended to ensure that the minimum family contribution is collected prior to the issuance of awards.
  • Final payment is due on May 26th for all registrations.
  • Standard cancellation policies do apply to financial aid recipients after May 15th, 2019
  • Financial assistance funds are limited and intended to be supplemental, so only partial scholarships may be available to standard scholarship applicants.

  • A maximum of 2 applications per family will be considered.  Separate applications are required for each child. Awards may be limited to 1 child per family.
  • Awards funds can be applied to bus fees, Adventure Days, and Trail Rides.  Please be aware that even with a scholarship these add-ons will increase the final cost of camp and your family portion of camp fees.
