Harry Moore has been heading up the Kamp Scholarship Fund since 2001. Harry passed away in 2020 and we thank him for his tireless efforts to make sure folks who otherwise could not attend Kamp, attend Kamp. Donna and Steve head up the Scholarship but make no decisions to the lucky recipients. That is all done by a secret board of Kamp representatives.
Submit your application early and good luck.
