Financial Aid

Camp Pemigewassett grants upwards of $300K in camper scholarships to more than 50 campers every season. Scholarships are funded by the founding Reed and Fauver families and the generous gifts of alumni and current Pemi families.

Our hope is that all boys who wish to attend camp will be able to. We care deeply about providing the benefits of a summer at Pemi to as many families as possible. In an effort to make camp available to every camper who is interested, we offer financial aid to those who apply and qualify for financial support. To learn about our sessions, dates, and rates, click here.

If you would like to send your son to Pemi, but financial obstacles are a factor, please contact Director Kenny Moore to discuss your intention to apply for financial aid and information on an adjusted deposit. All information provided is kept confidential.

Then, to complete your application for financial aid, please:

  • Check the appropriate box in the online Camper Application form.
  • Download and complete our Financial Aid Form (PDF).
  • Submit the Financial Aid Form along with a copy of the first page of your most recent Federal Tax Return by November 1 to be considered for the first round of awards. January 15 is the deadline for the second round of Financial Aid. Afterwards, requests for financial aid will be considered on a case-by-case basis if funds are still available.

If you would like to help support a Pemi camper in going to Camp, click here to donate to the American Camp Association’s “Pemi Camper Scholarship Fund” or send a check payable to the ACA with “Campership – Camp Pemigewassett” written in the memo (mail to: ACA, 5000 State Road 67 North, Martinsville, IN 46151).

Thanks to our partnership with the American Camp Association (ACA), a charitable 501(c)(3) organization, gifts to the ACA’s Pemi Camper Scholarship Fund are fully tax-deductible. Gifts of any size directly serve campers for the coming summer and will help Pemi serve a wide range of incredible campers with full or partial scholarship support. Scholarship awards are need-based, and we work closely with each individual family to determine the appropriate amount. Once a boy has received a Pemi scholarship, our goal is to continue providing it to him for as long as he attends Pemi and still needs the support. With that in mind, the ongoing generosity of our community is paramount and deeply appreciated by all.
