Audubon is taking applications for summer camp scholarships | Journal-news

MARTINSBURG — The Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) is accepting applications for its 2022 Summer Camp Scholarship Program.

All applications must be postmarked by May 1. More information and scholarship application forms are available on the PVAS website at https://www.potomacaudubon.org/education/parent-resources/.

The Camp Bursary Program helps send deserving local youth to summer camps that focus on conservation and the environment.

Scholarships are available not only for PVAS day camps in Berkeley and Jefferson counties, but also for overnight camps hosted by other environmental organizations.

Any youth in the Potomac Valley Audubon Society service area (Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties in West Virginia and Washington County, Maryland) is eligible to apply. Priority is given to children with financial needs.

These scholarship opportunities are funded by grants, individual donors, and donations from local garden clubs. Fellows are asked to contribute a small portion of the cost of attending the camp, not to exceed $50.

Currently, scholarships for camps suitable for almost all ages are available. Camps, themes, locations, ages/grades served, and other information can be found on the PVAS website at https://www.potomacaudubon.org/education/parent-resources/.
