About VINS Nature Camp Scholarships

The VINS Nature Camp Scholarship Fund works to ensure that all interested youth have the opportunity to attend camp, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. Financial aid and scholarships are available for one week of camp per child and are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Each summer, VINS receives grant funds and generous donations in order to provide these opportunities to families who need assistance affording camp.

VINS believes that all children should experience the wonders of our natural world and engage in learning experiences in the outdoors.

Check back for application information after December 1, 2020
