Sources of Funding for Camp Fees

Over the years, many Camp Kennebec families received funding for camp fees from private and public agencies. The best way to secure funding is to apply to several sources and to apply early.  Many funding agencies make their decisions on a rolling basis as soon as they receive applications. We certainly don’t want you or your child to be disappointed.

In addition to the national and regional organizations below, many families receive funding from religious organizations like churches, mosques, temples and synagogues.  Others receive funding from the local chapter of a national organization like Kiwanis or Lions; it’s been many Kennebec families’ experience that these chapters have budgets for families in their local area.

Below is a list of  agencies that provided funding for camp fees to Kennebecers in the past.  If we can help guide you in any way, please don’t hesitate to call or email.
