Our Financial Aid Program
The Wayfinder Hero Fund is a scholarship program to help kids and teens in financial need attend our camps and events. We are very excited to offer financial assistance to those who love camp, but have trouble paying for it.
The Hero Fund is paid for by donations from our community members and from our Frontier Adventures. We are very grateful to have their assistance in supporting the Hero Fund.
To make a donation go here, mail a check to our office (write Hero Fund in the memo), or give us a call.

Be a Hero and help a child or teen join the adventure!
The amount of aid we can give out is variable depending on the current balance of the Hero Fund.
The process for requesting scholarships is below:
- Register online for the camp you’d like to attend. Register here.
- In the notes section of the online registration, please write information that tells us how much of the camp price you are able to afford and how much aid you would need. Please remember we are able to accept installment payments throughout the summer, and in some cases, during the off-season, but there is a $25 administrative charge starting Summer of 2019.
- Once Wayfinder has a better idea of camp enrollment, we will let you know how much aid we can give. If our offer works for you, you will be enrolled. If it does not meet your needs, you may un-enroll with no penalty.
For the 2019 Summer Season, the due date for scholarship applications is June 1st, but applicants are strongly urged to submit their requests by May 1st as we plan to do 2 rounds of grants this summer, the first around May 15 and the second close to the end of June.
