Camperships/Scholarships and Financial Aid
Each season, Maine Teen Camp awards approximately $50,000 in camperships and scholarships.
MTC ‘Legends’ Campership Program
Through the ACA (American Camp Association), donations are made in memory, or honor, of camp ‘legends’ – for example, someone who has held the directorship, worked as staff at MTC, or attended MTC as a camper. This fund is set up by the ACA so that donors may contribute funds in honor of someone important to them, or in memory of someone important to MTC. The web portal asks the donor for information they need for this type of donation. By partnering with the ACA, a charitable 501 (c)(3) organization, a private camp like MTC can offer tax advantages to donors and open our program to more children who might never otherwise experience camp.
The MTC ‘Legends’ Campership Program began with the Robert Briskin Memorial Fund, created after the passing of Bob Briskin (owner/director of MTC 1991-2003) from pancreatic cancer. As a tribute to Bob, the Robert Briskin Memorial Fund was established to provide a summer camp experience for campers whose families had experienced and dealt with cancer – families whose battle with the disease hindered their ability to send their camper away to summer camp. Since then, sadly, we have had other MTC ‘legends’ leave us, and so, we found it fitting to expand the program through using the ACA fund, and allow others to remember and/or honor loved ones by contributing a donation in their name.
Our goal is to increase the scope and reach of camperships, and to accept contributions from a wider section of the MTC community. We understand that there are a great many worthy causes that should benefit from charitable giving, and we hope that many will include sending a deserving camper for a summer at MTC as one of them.
MTC works in conjunction with Curtain Bluff, a resort hotel in Antigua, West Indies, to provide summer camp experiences for Old Road community children. The “Old Road Fund” helps send children to summer camp, further education, and provide healthcare to deserving families. Maine Teen Camp hires several staff from the resort during the summer season when the resort is seasonally closed.
The mission of Summer Search is to identify low-income high school youth who demonstrate resiliency in overcoming hardship and the desire to help others. Nurturing those qualities over time in students who have often been neglected allows them to become empowered future everyday leaders. Our ambitious mission is accomplished through a program that combines full scholarships to summer experiential education programs with intensive long-term mentoring.
Wildflower Camp Foundation
Wildflower Camp Foundation has grown out of the experience of one family in dealing with the loss of a parent and the subsequent years of recovery. The mission of the foundation is to provide scholarship assistance for summer camp and enrichment programs to families in which a parent has died. It is our belief that this opportunity can provide a restorative experience both for the children and surviving spouse in recovering from what is a difficult and challenging life crisis.
