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 1st.
How do we apply for a Warren Willis Camp Scholarship?
You can download a Warren Willis Summer Camp Scholarship Application at the button below, or by calling your local church or the Warren Willis Camp and Conference Center office at (352) 787-4345 or toll-free at (866) UMCAMPS. Completed Scholarship Applications must be postmarked by May 1st. Once you have completed the scholarship form, you can mail it to: Summer Camp Scholarship Committee, 4990 Picciola Rd. Fruitland Park, FL 34731.
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 one time in early May 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 before the May 15th and June 15th balance due dates. 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.
Summer Updates Coming Soon
We are continuing to prepare for an amazing summer camp season! We have revised our cancellation and refund policy due to COVID-19 concerns, and we will be following any changes to the American Camp Association standards to be sure we are up to date on best practices for the health and safety of our campers. You can register for a week of summer camp with confidence knowing that should this season of social isolation continue into the summer months, you can cancel your registration for a full refund up to 2 weeks prior to the scheduled week. So, it is time to begin dreaming and planning for your week at camp. Here is information on all of our summer camp options.
With Christ’s Love,
The Staff of the Warren Willis United Methodist Camp and Conference Center
