Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer are committed to creating a broadly diverse community by providing need-based scholarships, called Camperships, to ensure Camp is affordable for all.
Our campership program is funded through our Camp Annual Campaign and endowment disbursements - ultimately by alumni, parents and friends.
Camperships are income-based and assistance amounts are awarded on a sliding scale. More and more, we work with families in a middle-income range who desire to send their child(ren) to Camp but struggle to bridge the gap between affordability and program cost.

Financial Assistance is limited and not guaranteed. Assistance is income-based and is awarded on a sliding scale. The first step is filling out our Financial Assistance Interest Form.

Service Professional Program
The Service Professional Program is a set discount that is not based on income
Instead, we offer this discount to all who work in service-oriented fields such as first responders, police officers, nurses or those who serve our country. Applicants do not need to upload tax returns.
Financial Assistance Questions
The Financial Assistance Application is made available to families interested in Camperships after their Camp application is submitted. Interested families can submit a Financial Assistance Interest Form before Camp applications are open. This ensures potential Campership families do not pay a full application fee.
All financial information provided remains confidential and is used solely to evaluate the application.
Applicants will need a copy of their most recent 1040 tax returns. A business/farm statement and corporate tax return/schedule C/schedule F may be required as well as needed.

We consider a number of factors including, but not limited to, the number of children in the family, income and any unexpected life situations that place financial stress on the family.
Typically, this equates to a total household income of up to $115,000 for families with one child and up to $130,000 for families with two or more children.
