The Friends of the Fells is very excited to announce the establishment of a new Fells Forest Camp Scholarship Fund that will provide financial assistance to qualified families starting this summer! We believe every child deserves the opportunity to experience the joys of learning and playing in nature, and look forward to expanding our community of camp families and spreading our love for the Fells.
Fells Forest Camp provides children an opportunity to learn, grow, and be successful in ways that a typical school year doesn’t leave room for. With the forest as a backdrop, children learn to care for and connect to the natural world. They are encouraged to discover hidden talents, assess risk, and develop lifelong social skills and friendships. A week at Fells Forest Camp keeps kids physically active and provides an opportunity to unplug from the frenetic, often distracting world of technology, and in its absence, awaken a sense of peace and calm that can only be felt in nature.
The Fund is supported through donations, and awards are determined based on household size and income level. Funds are limited and are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
Please share the program with any friends or families who may be interested! Details on the scholarship program are provided here.
