SCHOLARSHIPS

FOR STUDENTS

Our summer camp scholarships and financial aid program is a partnership between the camper families, donating organizations, and The Story School’s donor fund.
 
The Story School is committed to assisting as many campers as possible in their quest to experience their own adventure at our summer camps. While we sometimes receive more requests than scholarships are available and occasionally are unable to accept an application, we strive to work with parents and organizations to assist as many children as we can. Scholarship requests for large amounts may require verification by a copy of your family’s most recent tax returns.
Each camper applicant must provide the following:
  • A completed scholarship application.

  • One letter of recommendation from a person not related to you. (Examples: teachers, principals, community leaders, neighbors)

FOR DONORS

If you are an organization or individual wishing to provide financial assistance for children to attend one of our summer camps, please click the donate button below or contact us at (781) 214-1174 for more information. 100% of all donated funds are used for Summer Camp Scholarships for children.

TESTIMONIALS

“This is the best camp experience my son has ever had! He can’t wait to go back! My son Ryan is usually the brainiac who no one really knows at home, but when we went to camp for the feast and heard he stood up in front of everyone to defend a spirit who no one else believed in and changed the minds of the rest, he experienced what I knew he could accomplish. Everyone was telling him how brave he was…I always knew my son could do wonderful things…but camp allowed him to show himself.”

-Marianne Murphy Harris
