Should You Choose the Partial or Full Scholarship?

When applying for a scholarship, we ask you to use the honor system. If you are financially able to afford some of the tuition, then you should apply for Partial Tuition. However, if you are unable to contribute anything toward tuition, then you should apply for the Full Scholarship.

Scholarship funds are limited, and we want as many children to come to camp as possible. Your careful consideration of which scholarship to choose is appreciated.
