An Affordable Summer Camp Experience

An Affordable Summer Camp Experience

While Anokijig is already very competitively priced against other private camps, we also offer a number of ways to make a week at camp easier on the pocketbook. Anokijig offers several opportunities for full and partial camperships (camper scholarships). Read below for details and application information!

General Camperships (Financial Assistance) - OPEN

Each year, many of Anokijig's supporters choose to support Camperships through donations for the Scholarship Fund.  These funds are used to help send as many children as possible to a week at summer resident camp.  Anyone can apply for financial support through Anokijig's Scholarship Fund.  Both full and partial camperships may be awarded based on financial need.
 
Applicant Requirements
  • Ages 7-16
  • Awarded based on immediate financial need
  • Fill out application form provided by Anokijig main office
