Update: Friday, April 17th
In recognition of the faithfulness of Florida United Methodist churches in forgoing public worship, our staff has decided once again to extend the deadline for scholarship applications to May 18th. This is an effort to give churches and families more time to collaborate to complete applications and ensure that scholarships are available for as many students as possible.
As we see the uncertainty these last weeks have created in our world, our staff remain steadfast in our commitment that every camper should have the ability to attend one of our Classic Camps, regardless of financial status. After conversations among our staff and Scholarship Committee, it has been decided that we will extend the deadline for our Scholarship Application to May 18th.

Who should apply for a Warren Willis Summer Camp Scholarship
Scholarships are available to any camper who is claimed by a Florida United Methodist congregation. Families who are having difficulty paying the camp fee and families with more than one child attending the Warren Willis Summer Camp program may apply for a scholarship. The 2nd half of this scholarship form must be completed by a representative of a Florida United Methodist congregation.
When will we find out if we’ve received a scholarship?
The Scholarship Committee will meet as soon as possible to review the applications and determine the amount of scholarship funds awarded. Notification of scholarship amounts will be sent by mail to the parent.
How much will the scholarship be?
The amount awarded will be dependent on how many people apply for the Warren Willis Summer Camp Scholarships. Please be aware that we do not award 100% scholarships.
If we have applied for a Warren Willis Summer Camp Scholarship, will we be notified before our final balance is due?
You will be notified of your scholarship award amount as quickly as possible. When you receive your award letter, it will include a voucher that must be submitted to the registration office to let them know that you have received and are using your scholarship. Some churches prefer to submit your voucher for you. Please check with your church for their preference, especially if they will be paying the final balance.
Can I email our scholarship applications?
We kindly request that applications be submitted via mail or fax.
