Summer Camp Scholarships

2020 Summer Camp Scholarship Application for Dayton, OH area residents only

Due to increased need, The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery has extended scholarship opportunities to the new Camp in a Box kits. The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery is a non-profit organization; in order to maximize the impact of funds which have been granted to our organization to distribute to the public in the form of summer camp scholarships, the Boonshoft Museum will limit awards to one per household, and require that Camp in a Box kits be picked up at the museum.

Each applicant needs to:

  1. Complete the online application form.
  2. Provide proof* of free/reduced lunch.

Scholarship applications will remain open on a first come first serve basis until funders are exhausted, or camps are sold out. 

Because scholarship funding is limited, we ask that applicants complete the process as soon as possible. Recipients will be notified as soon as they are approved, but please note that scholarships may NOT be applied retroactively to camps for which you have already registered. Approval can take up to three (3) weeks from the date that the application is complete.

If you are a Homeschool parent, have any questions regarding our scholarship program, or if you have an extreme financial need that you feel warrants further consideration, please call 937.275.7431, ext. 148.

*All documentation and letters of support may be uploaded with the online form or submitted separately, but must be included for the application to be considered complete and evaluated for a scholarship. If you cannot upload documentation with the online form, it must be delivered to our Summer Camp staff. This can be done in person (M-F, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.), by email (SummerCamps@BoonshoftMuseum.org), or via USPS (Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, c/o Summer Camp Scholarships, 2600 DeWeese Parkway, Dayton, OH 45414).
