Wayfinder’s Hero Fund

Our Financial Aid Program

The Wayfinder Experience Hero Fund is a scholarship program to help kids and teens in financial need attend our live action role playing summer 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.  We are very grateful to have their assistance in supporting the Hero Fund.

To make a donation please mail a check to our office (write Hero Fund in the memo), or give us a call.

Requesting Aid

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:

  1. Register online for the camp you’d like to attend and select to pay by check. Register here.
  2. Next please write an email with 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. Send your email to info@wayfinderexperience.com. We will contact you for any additional information we may need.
  3. 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 2024 Summer Season, the due date for scholarship applications is May 1st.  The first round of decisions will be made by June 1st.  Applicants submitting after May 1st will be considered in a second round decisions which will be made by June 21.
