2023 Campership Request
2023 Summer Day Camp Scholarship Application

Due to the generosity of our donors, we’re able to offer a limited number of scholarships to campers who might otherwise not have the means to go to camp. Apply for a “Campership” or Diversity Scholarship and we will send you a confirmation before registering. Please note that these take time to process and should be done as soon as possible to ensure they are processed before camp registration opens and fills.

Blandford Summer Day Camp offers a variety of experiences for children ages 4-12. To learn more about the camps we are offering this year please visit our website or inquire with our Camp Manager at camp@blandfordnaturecenter.org or (616) 735-6240.

Campership and Diversity Scholarship 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-week summer camp experience at Blandford Nature Center, please complete this application. 


  • Only scholarship forms completed, signed and accompanied by requested materials will be considered.
  • Financial assistance is for the 2023 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 week of camp.

Scholarships will be processed in the order that they are received and will be notified on a rolling basis based on camp availability. 

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