Camp Scholarship Program


The Wisconsin Humane Society Summer Camp Scholarship Program provides young people in need of financial assistance the opportunity to attend summer camp. Full scholarships are available for summer camps at the Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and Racine Campuses for young people completing grades 1-9.

Teachers or mentors can nominate a young person they think will benefit from a summer camp experience or families can apply directly. We encourage young people of all diverse backgrounds to apply. Nomination and application forms can be submitted online or printed and returned by mail or email.  Families must commit to ensuring their camper attends camp every day and be able to provide transportation to and from camp. 

The teacher/mentor nomination forms deadline is April 1, and the deadline for applications from families is April 20.
