Camp Scholarship

The History

The Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert Scholarship Fund was started in 1980 upon the death of Chuck Everett, long time director and partner with Brownie Cote and Fred Rogers. The memorials that came from this early giving were the seed money that started a very active and productive scholarship program. The fund was soon aligned with the American Camp Association, providing donors with a tax deductible benefit for their contributions.

Camp’s Scholarship Fund makes “camp happen” for 40 campers in 2015

A huge thank you to our alumni and camp friends, who helped 22 girls and 18 boys enjoy the experience of a lifetime at Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert this past summer!  2015 scholarship recipients came from Illinois, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Tennessee and Oklahoma, and a good number of the campers were referred by alumni, which is much appreciated!

The Scholarship Fund was started in 1981, as a memorial to long-time Director, Chuck Everett , and through generous annual support , memorials and donations from alumni and friends, continues to help make camp possible for an increasing number of families requesting scholarship support.    Donations are tax deductive through the American Camp Association, with CL and CLH matching all donations, thus increasing the amount of support for scholarships.
