Several summer camps offer a grant to those who qualify in order for a child to go to summer camp for free. Other methods to find free money for camp is to utilize no-cost camps that are established to help lower income families or camps that are run by the state or non-profit organizations.
When applying to any summer camp, always find out if they offer grants for kids who may come from lower income families. Most camps have these, but they only have a select number available each summer. Thus, applications need to be sent in early. When applying, financial information may be required that shows income and expenses, so that the camp can determine if a child really needs this to be able to participate in the camp.
Searching online for camps that offer grants is the best way to start if a person really has no idea. If a person has a certain camp in mind, explain the situation to the camp and explain that there is no money to utilize. Camps can apply for grants when they find that there are enough campers that need this assistance.
There are several camps that are free to the parents. For example, community day camps that are academically-based are often free.
