Friendship Fund Subsidy Program
At Camp Warwa, we believe that every child should be able to enjoy a camp experience. The Friendship Fund was created to provide financial assistance to families who can't afford the full cost of giving their child a camp experience.
The Friendship Fund is an endorser-based program. Families who apply must provide an endorser of a professional nature who can speak to your need for financial support. The program is best suited for families who can provide an endorser who is a social worker, support worker, medical professional or educator. What is important is that the reference is not of a personal nature ( such as a family member or friend). The Endorser will then be contacted by Camp Warwa. Ensure that you have have the Endorsers permission before naming them.
The Friendship Fund subsidy program is open to the general public and can pay up to 80% of your summer camp registration fees.
Families who apply for subsidy will put down a minimum payment of $40/camper. You will be registered for your camp with your spot being held while we process your subsidy application. We will then contact you via email to inform you as to how much subsidy we are able to provide. The email will also indicate the date that any remaining balance will be charged to your credit card.
The Friendship Fund is sustained by generous donations from individuals, governement agencies, businesses and community organizations. Many of our donors are staff members, board members, community service groups and friends who understand the value of camping. Each camper that recieves a Friendship Fund subsidy, is confidentially matched with a donor.
Each donor recieves a copy of the camp letter for the week so that they can hear about the experiences they helped to create.
