Cuscowilla Summer Camp Offering Scholarships

Press release from Alachua County

Cuscowilla (formerly Camp McConnell, 210 S.E. 134th Avenue, Micanopy) is registering children from kindergarten to twelfth grade for Overnight and Day camps. Cuscowilla is offering scholarships and financial aid opportunities for camp programs this year. Scholarships are need-based and include both full and partial payment for families that qualify. Children from families at or below 200% of the 2021 federal poverty threshold, children with an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) or a 504 plan, children from families receiving SNAP benefits, children in foster care, children in voluntary and formal kinship care, and children under in-home case management supervision all qualify for full scholarship while additional partial scholarships may be offered on a sliding scale based on income.

Cuscowilla is offering one- and two-week options for overnight camp experiences as well as Monday to Friday day camps. The summer programs sessions begin June 5, 2022.

To apply, families need only check “yes” to receiving financial aid during the online registration process. County staff will then be in touch shortly to assist with the best options available to the family’s specific needs.

The fees for day camps are $100/week, one-week overnight camps are $400/week, and two-week overnight camps are $800/2 weeks. Financial aid and scholarships are available through the online registration process.
