Financial Assistance FAQs

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.

My child was awarded financial assistance for 2021 programs. What does that mean for summer 2022?

If you need financial assistance for 2022, please answer the interest question during the 2022 registration process. This year, all campership applicants will need to fill out the financial assistance application for consideration.

Our hope is to be able to offer more new families financial assistance through restored funding levels consistent with 2019.

Once you answer the financial assistance interest question on your application for Camp, we will follow up with next steps and more information via email.

Who can qualify for a Campership?

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.
