Summer Camp Scholarship Application

Summer Camp Scholarship Application

Thank you for your interest in applying for a scholarship to participate in a summer camp at Cheekwood. Your camper must be between the ages of 4 –15 and have access to transportation to and from Cheekwood to be awarded a scholarship. This application will allow the selection committee to become better acquainted with you and your camper’s interests. Please fill out the form below in its entirety. If the camp weeks and camp names are left blank, we will be unable to process your request. If you have questions regarding particular camps, staff will be happy to assist by phone 615-353-9827 or email education@cheekwood.org before you submit the form.

In order for Cheekwood to share the camp experience with as many children as possible, Cheekwood scholarships will cover 50% of the cost of one week of full-day camp, including extended care option, or 100% of the cost of a half-day of camp, again including extended care. Scholarship awards are based on the financial need according to the family’s most recent tax return. All requests and information submitted to Cheekwood are confidential and only used to determine financial need. Again, please be aware that incomplete applications will not be considered.

New for 2020! We are pleased to offer a limited number of transportation stipends, payable in the form of $50 gas gift cards. To be considered for the stipend, please check the box in the application below. All addresses five miles and further from Cheekwood are eligible.
