scholarships/financial aid

Scholarships/Financial Aid

Families of all campers (Ages 3 – 14) are eligible to apply for financial aid. Families may apply for support for more than one child; however – depending on demand – aid may be limited to one per family.

Awards will be made for up to a maximum of 70% of the camper’s registration fees. Typical awards are in the 20% to 40% range. The New Canaan Nature Center will award scholarships based on the following considerations:

  • Financial Aid fund availability
  • Demonstrated financial need of the applicant family
  • Demonstrated interest in camp/nature from the child
  • Available space in camp sessions
