Summer Learning Adventure Camp Financial Aid 

Summer Learning Adventure Camps are designed to support inclusive and collaborative learning, promote exploration and discovery, and empower campers to reach their full potential. Thanks to the generosity of Scripps supporter Ellen Lehman, we are able to offer summer camp scholarships for campers needing assistance to enjoy the benefits of camp at Birch Aquarium.

“We think that it is important for children, at a young age, to learn about the ocean - its fun possibilities for recreation, as well as its inhabitants - and the ocean’s importance for mankind’s future.” - Ellen Lehman

How to Apply

We strive to make summer camps available to all children. Scholarships are awarded based on need, so please review and fill out the scholarship application to see if you qualify. We hope to respond to all applications within 5-7 business days.

If you are applying for financial aid on behalf of multiple children, please submit a separate application for each child.
