Camp Financial Aid

Summer Camp Financial Aid 

Camps are designed to support inclusive and collaborative learning, promote exploration and discovery, and empower campers to reach their full potential. Thanks to our donors' generosity, we can offer summer camp scholarships so that campers needing assistance may enjoy the benefits of Birch Aquarium's camps.

“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.”
