Skilled Building Scholarships

The goal of the Camp/Skill-Building Scholarship Program is to provide scholarships to a targeted group of youth for activities that would enable them to develop a skill, talent, or interest. These skill-building scholarships are aimed at expanding the child's horizon, increasing the child's skills, building self-confidence, and enhancing self-esteem.
