The Natural History Museum of Utah strives to provide high-quality, inclusive programming to children attending kindergarten through the fifth grades. We are thankful to our camp sponsors, who have generously donated funding toward our scholarship program for 2021. Scholarships cover 100% of camp fees and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to students who receive free or reduced price lunch in the Free or Reduced School Lunch Program, or whose families meet the Income Eligibility Guidelines for the program.

Please note that because funds are limited and demand for camp is high, qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee a scholarship award. In addition, while we do our best to fulfill requests, qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee a spot in summer camp. The scholarship program allows one scholarship per child per summer. If a family has more than one child, the parent or guardian may submit a separate application for each child in the household. Preference will be given to those who received awards for 2020, and then for new applicants. However, applicants who have received a scholarship in the past will still be considered. Parents or guardians are responsible for providing transportation each day of camp as well as a lunch and two snackst.

Scholarship applications are being accepted in the form below. We reserve the right to close the application process, without notice, once our scholarship funding has run out or spots in our camp program are full. Completed applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and applicants will be notified within five business days of receipt. Application information will be held confidentially and destroyed when Summer Camp 2021 has concluded.
