To help defray some of the camp fees for participants, a variety of sources for stipends and sponsorships are listed below.

Conservation Districts

Campers are encouraged to contact their local Conservation District for sponsorship, which will cover much of the camp fee. Click here for an Interactive Conservation District Map. Keep in mind that most Conservation Districts require you to send in your application for sponsorship several months before camp to allow for processing, so don't delay!

How it Works:

For all sponsorships please indicate on your application what sponsorship you want or applying for. Remember you must meet the requirements in order to be accepted for the sponsorship. In order to receive your sponsorship he/she must turn in a complete application, letter of recommendation, with a $150.00 deposit. Be accepted and attend the full 6 days of camp. When camp is over the deposit or any amount owed to the camper will be refunded.

Note: Stimson Lumber Company sponorships are a first-come, first-serve basis.
