ENVIRONMENTAL CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS
Family Camp Scholarship for Eligible Adult and Child
This year we are offering a full scholarship for one adult and a related child between the ages of 8-13 to the family camp on Maine’s scenic Hog Island. The session’s program will take place from August 11 to August 16 2020.
Hog Island’s Family Camp provides a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy nature together. The pristine environment on Hog Island offers a wide variety of habitats for nature study. Campers cruise Muscongus Bay in search of seabirds and seals. They examine aquatic insects and amphibians in a freshwater pond, look for mushrooms and wildflowers in the forest, and search for fish and marine invertebrates along the intertidal zone. Evening programs include night hikes and stargazing. Each day begins with an optional early morning bird walk and ends with a family campfire program filled with songs, stories, and skits.

The camp is designed for families with children ages 8-13 (children must be in this age range at the time of the camp). The Audubon scholarship is for one child and one related adult (grandparents, aunts, and uncles are welcome). Either the adult or the child must be a resident of Lackawanna, Wayne, Susquehanna or northern Pike Counties.
Mid-August is an ideal time to enjoy the natural world in mid-coast Maine. Fall migration is starting, the salt marshes are changing colors, bioluminescence sparkles through the saltwater, and the northern lights might be dancing across the sky. Experience an educational family vacation you will never forget.
This scholarship covers the costs of camp programs, lodging and meals. Scholarship recipients must arrange for transportation to and from the Audubon Dock in Bremen, ME at the start and finish of this session. This scholarship will be awarded based on the information provided on the attached application.
Application deadline is March 1st 2020. 2020 application family camp
