What is the purpose of our sponsorship program? Sponsor a campership for a student entering grades 9th-12th. The average cost for a camper slot is $675 ($600, if early bird registrant). All of our campers/students will also be investing in their own camp experience. Our goal is to allocate funding to as many students as possible. We limit our financial assistance to $300 maximum per child, unless a donor designates additional funding. We anticipate that the needs will be great. Thanks for your consideration.
- When you sponsor a camper, you can expect a few things in return.You will receive a photo of the student which will serve as a reminder to you that you are providing a for a life-changing week for that student.
- After camp is over, we make every effort to have your student write a personal letter to you as a thank you and to share with you some of their camp experiences, such as their culminating project.
- We thank you in advance for taking time to consider helping a student who is seeking exposure to the Biomedical community and to be influenced by some amazing camp counselors and staff.
