The Max and Marion Caldwell Foundation Making a difference in children's lives by sending kids to camp. Annual Camperships (Scholarships to attend camp)
 
Camperships Offered
The Max and Marion Caldwell Foundation camperships are a cooperative effort between the Foundation, the participating camps and the camper's family. The Foundation believes that by asking the family to participate financially, each partner is investing in the future of the selected camper. All camperships require the family to pay a portion of the tuition.

Each year we receive more applications than we have camperships to award. Please be aware that if you are applying for multiple children in your family, and we are able to award a campership to one of them, we do not guarantee camperships for the other(s). In addition, we do not guarantee that if you've been awarded a campership in a previous year that you will be awarded one again. Finally, all information on availability of camp sessions is at the sole discretion of the camp to which you are awarded the campership. If there are only certain sessions that work for your schedule, please check with the camp to inquire about availability before you apply.

Campers must enroll separately with the participating camp and the camperships are paid directly to the camp.

To apply for a campership:

1. Complete and submit the appropriate online Campership Application Form:

2. Send a copy of your previous year's IRS Tax form 1040 (pages 1 & 2 only, block out Social Security Numbers) and a copy of the most recent school report card via email to foundation@caldwellfoundation.org (send as a scanned PDF attachment).

3. Please send the Online Campership Reference Form to your references and ask them to complete before the deadline above. (3 references for Overnight Camperships, 1 reference for Day Camperships.)

An application will not be considered unless all of these pieces of information are received before the deadline.
