Since 1966, we have provided financial aid in the form of camperships to 70,000 deserving children from San Diego County.
Financial aid in the form of "Camperships" is available to qualifying residents of San Diego County wishing to attend San Diego County not for profit accredited Camps. In order to provide a camping experience for the greatest number of individuals, children aged 6 to 17 can only receive one campership in a twelve month period.
Applicants must also meet the eligibility guidelines for the free/reduced price lunch program, as published yearly by the United States Department of Agriculture through the California State Department of Education, to be eligible to apply for a "campership".
The Council works with various youth service organizations operating twenty-one American Camp Association accredited camps plus the San Diego County Office of Education Sixth Grade Camp. A list of these camps can be found on this site and a camp guide and list of participating camps can be mailed to you if you call our office.
