Financial Assistance


At Hidden Meadows, we know that camp can be life-changing: from lifelong friends and memories to newfound passion and confidence. But we also know that the full cost of camp is out of reach for many families. We believe that a diverse camp community makes the experience better for everyone, and socioeconomic diversity is no exception.

To help more families experience the joy of a summer at Camp Hidden Meadows, we offer camp scholarships (“Camperships”) to families who cannot afford the full cost of a session at Camp.

Camperships are awarded based on financial need, session availability, and availability of funding.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I qualify for a Campership?

We evaluate all Campership applications based on the information provided and take into consideration household income, family size, and other extenuating circumstances. If you’re not sure, we encourage you to apply!

What is the income cut-off for a Campership?

We do not have strict income cutoffs for Camperships. We evaluate a variety of factors, including income and family size. Because we offer camperships ranging from 10% of tuition to 90% of tuition, our Campership Families have a wide range of incomes.

What size of Camperships are awarded?
Camp Hidden Meadows only offers partial Camperships, but the size of the grant can vary from 10% of tuition to 90% depending on the availability of funds and the information provided in the application. All families are required to contribute a portion of the tuition.
What is the deadline to submit my application?

We review applications on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply early. The deadline for applications is May 1. Applications received after this date will only be considered if there is additional funding available.

I’m not sure whether camp is right for my child, who should I talk to?

If my child receives a Campership, will they still fit in at camp?
Yes! All campers are welcome to Camp Hidden Meadows and treated the same, regardless of Campership status. Neither the child’s counselor nor their cabinmates will know who received a Campership.
