Making Camp Affordable: 

We understand that families sometimes face economic challenges and must make difficult choices. Our hope is that no child would be deprived of a summer camp opportunity because of this. We don't want any child to miss out on this potentially life-changing opportunity because of cost. GENEVA friends and donations have helped us provide scholarship assistance for families with need. In order to address financial concerns, we've outlined ways to make camp accessible for EVERYONE.

Payment Options

1. Option 1: Pay in full by check or credit/debit card. We accept MasterCard, Visa, and Discover.

Camp Scholarships
 
Camp Geneva has a variety of scholarship funds which have been set up to provide help for campers who cannot afford the full registration fee. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of need and, as a general rule, do not exceed one-third of the camp fee.

Here’s how the scholarship application process works:
 
  • If you wish to apply for a scholarship, simply fill out the Scholarship Application which is integrated right into the online registration form.
     
  • When we receive a registration that includes a scholarship application AND a deposit, our scholarship committee will determine the amount of your scholarship. Scholarship applications will not be sent to the committee until we receive a deposit. If you are unable to pay the $100 deposit, please put a note in the "comments" field in the online registration letting us know how much of a deposit you are able to pay and we will adjust the payment before we charge your card. 
     
  • We will send you an email letting you know the amount of the scholarship and the balance due, if any. If you paid with a credit/debit card, we will set up the balance on a payment plan. If you paid by check, you can send it when you are able as long as it's paid at least 2 weeks before your camper comes to camp.
