Financial Assistance, known as Camperships, is offered at both Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer. Applying is easy and confidential. The application process and acceptance process are separate.
If you need financial assistance for 2021, please check the interest box during the 2021 registration process. For this one year, returning campership families do not need to fill out the financial assistance paperwork or additional information unless you are in a significantly different financial situation than you were a year ago.
Our hope is to be able to offer a similar award to what you received in 2020. However, it will depend on how the overall retention and demand lines up with our available funds.
Once you check the box indicating you still need financial assistance for 2021 during the registration process, you will receive next steps and more information by email.
If you were awarded funding through the Service Professional Program in 2020, we will email with a few follow up questions once you apply for 2021. We will likely be lowering grant amounts for this program for 2021, in which case you can apply for traditional financial assistance if you have a higher need.
If you are interested in financial assistance, please indicate that to us by answering the relevant question during the registration process. We will be working through returning financial assistance campers first and then will follow up with other returning camper families afterward if funding remains. At that time, if funding remains, we will share the financial assistance paperwork that needs to be filled out in order to be considered. As much as we would like to be able to offer assistance to everyone, we do not anticipate having funds available for brand new campers after our awards to returning campers.
We consider a number of factors including, but not limited to, the number of children in the family and how many of them are attending Camp, all sources of income, assets and liabilities, other expenses such as mortgage or rent, automobiles, non-reimbursed medical expenses, etc. We also take into consideration any unexpected life situations that place financial stress on the family.
Typically, this equates to a total household income up to $115,000 for families sending one child and up to $130,000 for families sending two or more children to Camp.
Camperships are available for the following programs:
