Apply for Financial Assistance

We want to offer the opportunity for as many people as possible to attend New Culture Summer Camp East.  For those in financial need, we can make work trade and/or scholarship arrangements. Most work trade is available before camp – the work is usually done in the Washington DC area or at our site in West Virginia, and can sometimes be done in your home area as well.  Please get in touch with us – if you want to be there, we want you there!  Let’s figure out what works for you!

Part of building a New Culture includes working against existing systemic barriers and creating more equity and accessibility. To support our goal of welcoming all people to Summer Camp, we especially encourage campers who are BIPoC, trans, LGBQ+, disabled, or hold other marginalized identities to apply for scholarship.

Please register first, then fill out the below application to request financial assistance. Decisions on financial assistance applications submitted before the priority deadline will be made immediately following the priority deadline, if for any reason you need to know sooner please let us know. Applications submitted after the priority deadline cannot be guaranteed financial assistance. We look forward to seeing you at camp!

Priority Deadline: May 25, 2024

Final Deadline: June 12, 2024
