Why does the Scholarship fund exist?
Because circumstances in any family's life can get in the way of the ability for a child to come to camp. The staff and board of Forest Springs want kids to come to camp even if that means they come at no cost. WHY?
Because the love of Christ experienced at camp is life changing!
What does this mean to you as a parent, guardian, grandparent, or friend?
First, does your child want to come to camp? Then don't let finances get in the way of your child spending time in a loving atmosphere where they can grow in their love for God and people.
Second, register today by calling us at 715-427-5241! Even if you're unsure of where the money will come from. Then when you arrive at camp, pay what you can.
Third, If you struggle with using the scholarship fund because it seems like charity, consider this: The scholarship fund gives you the flexibility to fund your child's camp experience now. Later, as the Lord provides, you can give back to the scholarship fund. But if you can't, thank God for the loving provision from hundreds of other people who want to see your child at camp.
The bottom line is "send your child to camp" and "pay what you can." Trust God with us for the rest!
If your child brings a friend who has not been to Forest Springs for a summer overnight youth camp in the past, we will give your child and their friend each a $25 account credit good toward purchases during overnight camps. It’s our way of encouraging young people to come to camp and grow in their faith! Look for the section "Invite a Friend" on your online registration or write it in on your paper registration form.
Submit a $50 youth camp deposit for a six-day camp by March 10th, and we will take $25 off of your registration for each child you register. It’s an easy way to save money and secure your child’s spot for summer youth camp. The "Early Bird Special" will automatically be deducted from online and paper registrations that are received before March 10th.
After you’ve registered your first child for a six-day youth camp, we will take $50 off each subsequent six-day youth camp registration for your family. Please note the discount on the paper registration form and follow the multi-child discount instructions for online registrations.
* The $25 camp credits will be awarded to those campers who have at least covered their $50 camper deposit fee.
** Early bird special and multi-child discount can only be applied to those who do not receive camp scholarships.
Feel free to contact us with any questions at 715.427.5241 or send an email to the Youth Registrar.
