Through the generosity of individuals, churches, and local businesses, a limited amount of financial assistance is available to help families participate in camping programs at Camp Wightman. In order to help as many families as possible, the following guidelines have been adopted:
- Except in extenuating circumstances, the family is expected to pay a portion of the camp fees. The family should determine the portion it can pay, and indicate this amount on the Application Form.
- Families seeking campership assistance should also request support from their church and other sources (extended family, social service agencies, etc.) and indicate the amount of support they will receive from those sources on the Application Form.
- Campership awards are limited, and depend on the funds available and the number of applications received. There is no guarantee that a family will receive assistance in the amount requested.
- Campership assistance from Camp Wightman is generally limited to one-half of the cost of a one week in-camp program per camper per season.
Unless the camper is already registered, families should either register for their desired program online prior to submitting this application or a completed registration form should accompany the submission of this application. You may download a Campership Program Application below.
