Camp Scholarships Available for NH Children

Thanks to the continued generosity of St. Andrews-by-the-Sea in Rye Beach, there are 24 scholarships available for New Hampshire children to attend overnight summer camp at the Barbara C. Harris Camp. Please identify children in your church or community who would not otherwise be able to have a summer camp experience. The scholarship from St. Andrews-by-the-Sea will cover one third the cost of camp ($210 per child, per week). Barbara C. Harris camp will provide an additional one third scholarship and either the family or the church will provide the additional one third. Churches can recommend children for more than one scholarship, or for an additional week. Scholarships are available on a first come, first served basis. 

In order to apply for the scholarship, please register the child/ren for camp, and then send an email to Tina Pickering at tpickering@nhepiscopal.org indicating who you have registered. It is best to register as soon as possible to ensure there are sufficient scholarship funds available. St. Andrews-by-the-Sea will then send scholarship monies to the church. Online registration will require you to create an account and fill out the financial aid section at http://www.bchcenter.org/register-for-camp. If you need help with registration or additional financial aid, contact Camp Director Alessia Doss alessia@bchcenter.org or the Camp Registrar at camp@bchcenter.org

Gary Fincke, Senior Warden, says, “We would love to see the scholarships be used for kids that might not otherwise be able to go to camp. On behalf of St. Andrew’s, we very much appreciate your assistance in helping to spread the word so more kids can benefit from all that the BCH camp has to offer.”
