Camp Scholarship Forms

The Fayette County 4-H Program funds are limited; however, we do have some funds specifically available for camp scholarships. These funds have been donated by local businesses, organizations, and individuals. Camp scholarships will be awarded based on financial need of the family and participation of the 4-H’er in 4-H activities. Preference will be given to those who have not received a camp scholarship in the past. We may also hold fundraisers to help raise money for camp if we receive an overwhelming number of camp scholarship applications. Camp scholarship applications are available at our office, during in school club meetings, and online.
