The Camperships model is unique to the camping industry. Camperships assists to directly connect families who are seeking a camp experience for their child(ren) and who may need a little extra financial help with camps that are willing to offer a partial scholarship for specific openings.
Camps typically prepare for the summer season a year in advance. It is important that they attract and enroll the right campers for their programs to insure the best summer experience for all. This is especially true of residential camps where campers are part of a shared community environment so personality, attitude and similar skills and/or interests are important. Camps are unwilling to compromise their standards of camper enrollment for this reason. However, summer camp is much more than a business. Summer camp offers children the opportunity to explore new interests, gain independence, and meet new friends (from all over the world) in a safe and secure environment.
Camp directors want to help as many children as they can benefit from their programs and often participate in various scholarship programs to assist those in need.
