Dear Applicant and Parent,
Our exciting CAMP HOPE Program is a week-long summer camp held Monday through Friday at the Santa Maria Animal Center. Youths aged 9-12 are invited to attend. Our summer camp introduces campers to a variety of hands-on learning modes to allow youth to explore career and volunteer opportunities, basic pet responsibility, important life skills and local animal issues.
The Santa Barbara County Animal Care Foundation delivers methods with the intent of providing support for low income youth who would not otherwise be able to attend Camp HOPE. The cost of Camp HOPE is $210 per camper and includes all learning supplies. Youth can request financial assistance if they are unable to afford the full registration fee—the cost for camp to those youth who are awarded a scholarship will be $100 (a $110 discount)
Up to five scholarships will be awarded for each camp session. Financial requests should be submitted as soon as possible. Applications will be reviewed and awarded on first come first serve basis, as applications qualify to be awarded. Applications will be accepted until camp sessions are full or discounts are awarded.
The $100 scholarship is not a cash amount given to the youth, family, or Camp; it is a discount that is awarded to reduce the registration fee for the qualifying youth.
Thank you for your interest.
The Camp HOPE Staff
