The Indian & Forest Acres Scholarship Foundation provides scholarship funds for the purpose of sending children to Indian & Forest Acres Camps who will enrich and become good citizens of “Our Summer Place,” but who need additional financial resources to attend.
The Foundation is run exclusively by members of the Indian & Forest Acres family, who share the Camps’ ideals of nurturing traditions as well as relationships, setting strong examples for future generations, and contributing to the community.
The Foundation seeks to enable children from a broad range of socio-economic backgrounds to experience the ideals of the Camps’ unique mission of being a community where campers develop physical, social and leadership skills through learning to set and achieve goals, experiencing risk in a safe and supportive environment and gaining a sense of personal and community responsibility.
BECOME A CAMPER
We welcome you to apply for a Foundation Campership Award. If you’ve taken the time to view the Indian & Forest Acres website, perhaps you can see yourself as a camper enriching and becoming a good citizen of “Our Summer Place.”
Decisions on eligibility to receive a Foundation Campership Award from the Indian & Forest Acres Scholarship Foundation are based on the Foundation's evaluation of the individual circumstances and qualities presented by each applicant and their family, as presented by the application materials and interviews, and not according to a predetermined set of eligibility criteria. The Foundation reserves the sole right to determine eligibility.
