camper scholarship program
Skyview Ranch is excited to offer scholarship assistance for campers! We do not want a single camper to miss the best week of their life or what God wants to do in them.
Those who sincerely need financial assistance are encouraged to apply for a scholarship. Funds are reserved for those potential campers who have the greatest need. Skyview also recommends contacting the pastor of your local congregation about any scholarship assistance your church may have.

How is eligibility for scholarships determined?
Camp scholarships are determined based on financial need, hence the most recent IRS 1040 is required unless applicants are otherwise told by Skyview staff. Extreme or extenuating circumstances may also be taken into account, such as sudden medical bills, deaths in the family, and so on.
Are scholarships given out in partial amounts or full?
Again, scholarships are determined based on financial need. The majority are given out as partial scholarships. However, some applicants receive them in full.
Are scholarships only for summer campers?
No! Scholarships are possible for any guest who wishes to attend a Skyview sponsored retreat (Summer Camp, Ladies Retreat, Men's Retreat, Hunter's Retreat, Creation Camp, Winter Blast, Mission SubZero). Scholarships are unavailable for both the Golf Marathon and Rough and Rugged Race as those are scholarship fundraising events.
How can I check the status of my application?
At any point during the application process, you can call or email the Office to request an update. Once all paperwork has been received, it generally takes up to two weeks for everything to be processed and possible scholarship to be given out.
