Virtual Camp Financial Aid
Virtual 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 our donors, we are able to offer virtual 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.”
2020 Application Process
We strive to make 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.
- Submit one (1) separate application for each child who will be attending camp.
- You must apply for financial aid prior to registering. We are unable to tentatively reserve camp spots prior to processing financial aid applications.
- If your application is approved for financial aid, you will receive confirmation via email with instructions on how to register for camp. You will have a two (2) week deadline to accept the offered aid and officially book your camper's spot.
- If your application is not approved for financial aid, you will be notified via email.
We recommend applying as soon as possible as financial aid is limited.
