How to find a camp you can afford

A scholarship may defer camp costs

Look into scholarships. Every camp has different eligibility criteria, but it pays to apply even if you think you make too much money. The key is to apply early, so that if you are turned down you can find either ask about discounts or other payment options at the camp or simply find another camp for the summer.
College at SUNY Orange has a limited math and science summer camp grant for Newburgh residents that includes transportation. "These programs were originated with the intention to provide fun and exciting academic experiences for students, that will enhance their knowledge and skills as they move from one grade to the next,” says Rosana Reyes-Rosello, director of Educational Partnerships. “At the same time, these students will be exposed to a college environment and college level academic expectations. We believe in creating projects that enhance students' educational transitions and success from one grade level to the next."

Another summer camp program from SUNY Orange that is available to all Hudson Valley residents is the SMART (Sensory Motor Activities & Recreational Transition) Summer Program. It was designed for students from pre- kindergarten through the fifth grade, who receive occupational therapy services during the school year, but are not eligible for those services during the summer. Kids learn to improve skills such as handwriting and sensory-motor integration, as well as enhance socialization. Camp is held at the SUNY Middletown campus and lasts for four weeks.
