Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs
Since its inception in 1904, Camp Moosilauke has been providing children from low-income families the chance to attend the Camp, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Historically, this has been possible through a Camp sponsored financial aid program. Prospective families interested in finding out about financial aid should contact Bill and Sabina as part of their application process.
As part of Moosilauke’s 100th anniversary celebration, the Camp joined with the Fresh Air Fund to create a scholarship program which allows alumni, parents, and friends of Moosilauke to help provide additional children the opportunity to take part in the Moosilauke experience. The Fresh Air-Camp Moosilauke Scholarship Fund specifically targets children from low income communities in New York City. The Fresh Air organization helps screen and select prospective children to attend Moosilauke. The organization also invests and administers all donations to the Fund.
There are a number of ways of giving to the Fund. Any amount over $50 can be donated directly to the fund in support of campers attending the following summer. A named 2.5-week scholarship fund can be endowed with a gift of $34,000. A named 4.5-week scholarship fund can be endowed with a gift of $60,000. All gifts are tax deductible. Checks should be made out to the Fresh Air-Camp Moosilauke Scholarship Fund, and sent to: Fresh Air-Camp Moosilauke Scholarship Fund, 35 Camp Road, Orford, NH 03777.
If you have questions about the scholarship fund, please contact Bill and Sabina at 800 353 4546 or email@example.com. For more information about the Fresh Air Fund in general, call 800 367 0003 or visit their website at www.freshair.org.
Over the last decade, Moosilauke has also wholly funded and operated a week-long camp for children from low-income backgrounds from the Vermont and New Hampshire area, called “Listen.” Listen is a program for boys and girls from 8-13 years of age which takes place at the end of the regular sessions. The Listen campers have a full camp experience at Moosilauke for six days.
