Summer Camp at SOAR Scholarships
LD & ADHD Scholarships—Need-Based Financial Support for Summer Camp at SOAR
Our programs provide participants the opportunity for growth in a nurturing, supportive environment. We know that the cost of tuition is out of reach for some families that may benefit from our services, so we strive to bridge the gap by offering various types of financial assistance in the form of ADHD scholarships to those who qualify.
Keep in mind that SOAR’s summer camp tuition varies by location, program length, and activities included in the session, and the amount of financial support provided in the form of scholarships may vary accordingly.
All of our ADHD scholarships are given based on need. We ask our families to be honest when completing the Scholarship Application.
Here is a list of the ADHD scholarships we offer:
- General Camp Scholarship Fund. This fund is for any family that qualifies, based on need, to receive a scholarship from SOAR.
- Military Camp Scholarship Fund. These scholarships are reserved for families that have a member in any branch of the military. It is one way that SOAR is able to say THANK YOU for your service!
- Memorial Scholarship Fund. Memorial scholarships were created to honor the lives of those who have made a difference at SOAR and in our community. To learn more about the Memorial Scholarships we offer click here.
- Alumni Family Funded Scholarships. Thanks to generous SOAR families, we can provide a full scholarship for a family each summer. We are thankful for these wonderful alumni families and their willingness to help!
