2020 Campership Request
2020 Summer Day Camp Campership Application

At Blandford Nature Center we strive to ensure that every child has the opportunity to experience nature and history in a fun, hands-on way. Thanks to the generosity of donors, we are able to offer camperships to families that might not otherwise have the means to afford a camp experience.

Blandford Summer Day Camp offers a variety of experiences for child ages 4-12. To learn more about the camps we are offering this year please visit our website or inquire in our Visitor Center Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm and Saturday from 10am-4pm. We can also be reached at 616-735-6240.

Campership awards are designed to increase the diversity of our camper population so that participants better reflect the greater Grand Rapids community. If you have a dependent that would benefit from a one-day or one-week summer camp experience at Blandford Nature Center, please complete this application. 


  • Only campership forms completed, signed and accompanied by requested materials will be considered.
  • Financial assistance is for the 2020 summer season. A new application must be completed each year.
  • Financial assistance of partial or full camp cost for each child is determined by demonstrated financial need.
  • Each eligible camper will receive a campership for one day or week of camp.

Campership recipients with a valid Blandford Nature Center Membership will be notified by March 2, 2020. Campership recipients without a membership will be notified on a rolling basis based on application submission date. 

Please complete your campership application prior to registering for camps. Upon the approval of your campership application, you will receive a confirmation to register for summer camp(s).
