Attending camp can change a child's life!
Our financial assistance can offer children the opportunity to attend some AMAZING camps for very little money. Information about camps and links to financial assistance applications is just below.
Each year PVAS uses proceeds from our fall birdseed sale and donations from individual sponsors to provide financial assistance to area children so that they can attend summer camp. Berkeley Community Pride also often provides several such scholarships to Audubon Discovery Camp.
Assistance applications for day and overnight camps are accepted until early April. The Financial Assistance Committee meets soon after that date to consider all applications at one time. All persons who apply for camp assistance will be notified about the status of their application by the end of April. If you have questions, contact Kathryn Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PVAS encourages youth ages 11 and older to consider attending an overnight camp. These quality nature camps can be life-changing and provide campers with an in-depth nature experience. PVAS offers assistance to several including Junior Nature Camp at Oglebay Resort in Wheeling WV, Burgandy Center for Wildlife Studies in Capon Bridge WV, the West Virginia Teen Conservation Camp in Ripley WV, the Student Climate and Conservation Congress (SC3) at NCTC, and Family Camp at National Audubon’s Hog Island in Maine! If your child has a real interest in nature and is ready to be away from home for one to two weeks, think about applying for one of these scholarships. They are literally the chance of a lifetime!
In past years, PVAS's Financial Assistance has sent youth to these overnight camps:
Scholarships are also offered to several day camp opportunities for campers in the West Virginia Eastern Panhandle.
