Reduced Rates and the Campership Program:

Camp Scholarships or Camperships are available in several ways. As you peruse the camp website, you will find that for each camp, two camp fees are listed. The first fee is a lower fee offered to campers from the Atlantic Northeast District Church of the Brethren and ABCOPAD (American Baptist Churches). These two entities support Camp Swatara financially and make it possible for us to offer the reduced rate to them. Many individual churches also aid their campers in attending camp. 

In addition to these reduced rates for certain campers, we offer a Campership program to ALL campers who would like to attend camp. We want to make sure each individual who would like to attend camp is able to do so, regardless of finances. To be eligible for a Campership, a camper must be interested in attending camp and complete the form below. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the camp office.
