Financial Assistance 2017

Due to generosity of campers and the success of fundraising events BCWC is able to offer financial assistance with camp fees.

All of the funds raised for scholarship come from Witchcamp participants through generous donations and many unique, wonderful ways we raise money each year, such as the auction during camp, Vancouver Samhain, class tithing and individual donations. We encourage you to organize fundraising events before camp to raise funds for scholarships.

Scholarships (Needs-based financial assistance)

Applications do not have a deadline but will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, with a completed registration and deposit.

This year we are offering a set number of scholarships based on a budget set well before the start of camp. Applications for scholarships may be submitted at the time of registration and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Campers can apply for up to $200 in scholarship funds. The registrar will contact applicants on receipt of their registration to inform them whether there are still scholarship funds available.

Please note that in order to make a camp experience available to the maximum number of folks, scholarships for campers who have a work exchange position will be limited to $100.

We encourage camper fundraising in our home communities to support individuals in need.

Needs-based scholarship applications can be made at the time of registration (i.e., after you have submitted your registration through the website or by mail) by e-mail to: info@bcwitchcamp.ca with “scholarship application” in the subject line. Please put your legal name as well any magical or preferred name, and note the amount of scholarship you are requesting, to a maximum of $200. Remember that
scholarships need the initial deposit to seed the effort, and we are thankful for the members of the
community who work for, and with, each other to help applicants over that hurdle. Would be
applicants are encouraged to reach out to community members to begin their camp magic with this
first step.
