    Is there a scholarship fund for those who can't afford a week of camp?

    We don’t want to see anyone miss out on the opportunity to attend camp!  If you or your child would not be able to attend summer camp without financial assistance, you are welcome to apply to the Camp Caroline Scholarship Fund, a fund into which many generous Camp Caroline supporters have donated, helping to make the camp experience available to as many as possible.  

    Because we want to be good stewards of the funds God has entrusted to us through these generous donors, we have put the following Scholarship Fund guidelines in place:

    1. The Scholarship Fund is intended only to cover a portion of the camp fees for a camper.
    2. All campers are required to pay the minimum $50 deposit to hold their spot.
    3. Additional camp option costs (outtrips, craft supplies, t-shirts, etc.) are not covered by the Scholarship Fund.
    4. Campers who have received a scholarship may only attend one camp session.
    5. While we would love to provide continual scholarship funding for a camper year after year, priority will be given to first time applicants.  Returning campers are welcome to apply, but financial assistance is not guaranteed.
    6. All personal information gathered through the Camp Caroline Scholarship Fund Application will be governed by Camp Caroline’s Protection of Privacy Policy.  Scholarship Fund applicants can view this policy on our website, www.campcaroline.ab.ca/privacy-policy/.

    For more information on how to apply, see the "Scholarship Fund" page of the “Camper Profile Form” during online registration. All requests will be carefully considered.

    2017 Devotionals

    As much as God loves you and wants to be with you, he actually loves you so much that He won’t go where you don’t want Him. He’s so gracious and loving that He gave you a will, and with that will, He gave you the freedom to reject Him. Right now it may feel like that’s impossible, camp tends to be a place where we feel so much closer to God, and it would be amazing if that didn’t go away, but camp is also a place where you’re surrounded by people who love God and are excited by His work in your life. When you get home it’s suddenly up to you to have that intentional time with Him, and it can be hard. We created this devotional for that “post camp” transition, it covers several ways you can continue to develop your friendship with God outside of camp. I hope that it encourages you to keep growing deeper with God, so that when you come back next year you’ll be able to speak to all the amazing things the Lord has done in your life.
