Every Child Deserves Camp

We believe that every child deserves to come to camp. With that, we offer scholarships to families who would otherwise not be able to afford to send their children to camp. Our scholarships come from the funds raised through our annual campaign and unspent camp store deposits. To apply, please complete these necessary application form and submit to:

YMCA Camp Collins–Office Administrator,
3001 SE Oxbow Parkway, Gresham, OR 97080

Scholarship Application


Scholarship eligibility will be determined by the Executive Director or their designee, based on a review of the required documentation. The YMCA reserves the right to refuse a scholarship to any applicant.

Applications must be submitted, reviewed, and accepted one week prior to the start of the session. The evaluation process may take up to five to seven business days once the completed application and all required supporting documentation has been received. Incomplete applications will not be processed. You will be contacted by a member of the camp office staff to notify you of your scholarship award.

The maximum scholarship amount that can be granted is capped at 40 percent of the total cost of camp. A $50 deposit is required at time of registration. Remaining balance will be due the Wed before your child's session starts. 

A scholarship may be awarded for only one session of overnight camp, no more than three sessions of day camp or one family camp weekend. 

If you have further questions, please contact the YMCA Camp Collins office at 503.663.5813 or email us.
