5 Ways to Save on Summer Camp: "Camperships" & Discounts

If you're worried about whether you'll be able to afford to send your kids to camp this summer, we've got some solutions for you! Luckily, there are people out there who are passionate about summer camp and have come up with resources to help families send their kids to camp.

One thing to remember: act quickly and act early because discounts, "camperships" and deals can be limited on a first-come, first-served basis!

Contact the director of your desired camp, and ask them if the camp provides options for families who need some support. According to the American Camp Association, nearly 90% of camps offer some type of campership. It's also good to keep in mind that camp directors are often happy to lend help or suggest outside sponsors who give special camperships to their specific camp.

2. Seek out service organizations in your community such as your local Rotary International Club. There are thousands of local service organizations that host camps, or sponsor children to go to camp. Our marketing coordinator at MySummerCamps.com received a full campership in high school through her local Rotary Club.

4. Check discount sites such as Groupon, Livingsocial, and Camperships.com. As a means to get more local customers, camps and classes are posting deals on discount sites.
