Scholarships for Scouts
The Northeast Illinois Council has been blessed with many Scouters, volunteers, and families who understand and appreciate the summer camp programs offered at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation.
These wonderful people know that we live in a time when finances can be greatly stretched, and it can be difficult to pay the summer camp fees (especially for families with more than one Scout). And they are aware that sudden financial hardships occur that could prohibit a Scout from attending one of these programs. Thanks to them, we can offer financial assistance to these families.
Thank you for your patience, as we created our new online Cub Scout and Boy Scout Scholarship Application Form (we’ve extended the deadlines). Everything you need to know for its completion is contained in the two attached documents (see below). Please make sure to read each completely before proceeding and forward them to all of our scouting families – even if they haven’t signed up for camp yet or asked about financial assistance. Knowing such assistance is available might help us all get their scouts to camp.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Debi Geiger, Northeast Illinois Council Program Assistant
