montana canoe camp girlsPlanning to apply for a camp scholarship? Now is the time! Applications are due by March 1, 2024!

The scholarships listed here are ordered from most to least possible financial assistance provided by the funding source. We encourage you to apply for all 3!

The Alpengirl ACA Campership Application can be submitted anytime after January 1, 2023, and is due by March 1, 2024 at the latest. The majority of our ACA Camperships are funded by the Burnt Lake Foundation (BLF), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Denver, Colorado operated by a few volunteer board members.

Additional scholarships are made available through generous contributions from individuals and organizations to the American Camp Association and designated for the Alpengirl Campership Fund.

Our ACA scholarships are made available to Alpengirl campers who have requested financial assistance and have been reviewed by Alpengirl Camp. Recipients are announced March 15, 2024, and typical awards range from $300 - $500. However, a limited number of need-based scholarships are available for higher percentages of tuition costs.

If you are able to, please consider making a CAMPERSHIP DONATION (tax deductible) that will assist girls in becoming Alpengirls! We want to bring the magic of an Alpengirl summer to as many girls as we can, and this is made possible by the generosity of our community and extended Alpengirl family. 

horse camp for girlsKid for the Wild Scholarship applications are due April 30, 2024! Up to $800 is awarded annually to two young people, ages 12-18 who best articulate their desire and need to pursue an experience in the outdoors. This scholarship encourages commitment to and connection with the natural world, and will be awarded for an experience that emphasizes nature exploration, wilderness adventure, environmental science, and leadership in the outdoors. 

The Kid for the Wild Scholarship is a tribute to the memory and vision of Walkin’ Jim Stoltz and his "kid for the wild" spirit.  Jim was a singer-songwriter, poet, photographer, painter, and long distance hiker from Big Sky and Helena, Montana. 

Jim hiked over 28,000 miles through the wilderness of North America – a true mountain man who experienced the wonder and wisdom of natural world with the heart of a child. Jim performed at many schools throughout the United States for children of all ages; 2 to 92.

If you’re applying for scholarships, PLEASE notify Alpengirl as soon as your applications are submitted so that we can ensure we have received your materials, or follow up with the organization on your behalf.
