A partial scholarship to either the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery or SunWatch Summer Camps will be awarded to each approved applicant. Because scholarship funding is limited we will only be able to grant partial scholarships which amount to 50% off the total tuition fee; one scholarship per camper may be applied to one week of camp. Summer Camp registration for all camp sessions is on a first come, first serve basis. If you have any questions regarding our scholarship program, please call 937.268.8199.
