Higher Ground at Lake Louise Psalm68Five Charlevoix County Scholarship
Higher Ground at Lake Louise has partnered with residents and businesses of Charlevoix county to provide camp scholarships for children and youth growing up without a father present in their lives. We are thankful to offer this scholarship, so kids can spend time at camp and hear about their Heavenly Father and His love and special blessings for them.
Who Qualifies? Any Charlevoix resident whose father has passed away, is incarcerated, has abandoned the family or very rarely contacts his children is eligible to apply. Children in foster care are also eligible to receive this scholarship. Single moms who have children who qualify for the Charlevoix County Scholarship are invited to attend one of the family camps offered through Higher Ground at Lake Louise with their children.
While our heart goes out to children of divorced parents, this scholarship is not designated for them unless they have extremely limited contact with their father. In order to protect the intent and integrity of this scholarship, we ask that you do not apply for this scholarship if you or your children are not truly eligible. If you are a Charlevoix resident and have financial concerns about attending camp and do not qualify for the Charlevoix County Scholarship, please apply for the HG@LL General Scholarship. We never want financial concerns to be the reason someone is unable to attend camp.
What is the cost? This year, we are asking Charlevoix families who are able to contribute $50 towards the cost of camp, with the Charlevoix County Scholarship covering the remaining costs. If this amount will cause financial hardship for your family, please call the camp registrar to talk about a reduced price and the option of having any monies paid refunded at the time of check-in.
How do I apply? In order to apply, you must first register yourself or your child for camp on our website at www.HigherGroundatLakeLouise.com. Once that is complete, fill out the scholarship application online. Please provide as much information as you are able when filling out the application. You will receive a notification once your application has been received. If there are any questions regarding your application, the camp registrar will contact you.
If you have any questions regarding finances or eligibility for this scholarship, please do not hesitate to ask.
