We are no longer accepting
scholarship applications for Summer 2020. Please check back after October 1st to apply for Summer 2021.
Summer Camp Scholarship Program
RVR offers partial scholarship assistance on a limited basis to prospective
campers with financial need. It is our desire that no child miss out on an RVR
camping experience because of financial circumstances, however, since financial
aid is limited we suggest you look to alternative sources before applying for aid.
If you are applying for more than one child, please add each child's
information separately at the bottom of the application below.
Please Note: You will only hear from us if you are selected to
receive scholarship funds. We keep all applications on file throughout the spring
and even into the summer as funds continue to come in during those times.
How do scholarships work?
After completing the application on this webpage, if your child is
selected to receive a scholarship, you will be notified by email.
Your email will contain a link to register your camper along with a
discount code for the amount of your scholarship. You must register
and pay your deposit within 2 weeks or your discount code will expire.
If you do not complete your registration by paying your deposit, your
registration will remain pending and your spot will not be held.
The amounts for scholarships are as follows:
$650 for one child families
$325 each for 2 child families
$220 each for 3 child families
You are responsible for any balances after these scholarship
funds have been applied. Please also note that Financial Aid Scholarships
are not typically combined with other discounts.
Where does the money come from?
Scholarships are made possible through direct donations of
individuals and organizations. Scholarship money is not raised from
the fees we charge our campers.
Who is eligible?
All prospective campers in financial need are eligible to apply.
Campers who have not received aid before will be considered first.
Applicants who have received aid in the past may still be eligible
for aid as well so go ahead and apply even if you have received aid
in the past.
Will I get one for sure?
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee every request will be granted.
We receive applications from over 400 prospective campers each year
and normally only have funding for around 300 of those. Each
application is reviewed and awards are made based on a number of
Does this application process register my child for camp?
No. If you are selected to receive a scholarship from RVR, you will
get an email telling you so with instructions on how to register your
camper and apply the scholarship. It is not until you receive that
email that you have been selected for a scholarship. Once you follow
that link to register, select a camp/week, add in the discount code
and pay the deposit, your child will be actually registered for camp.
